This thesis contains four studies on socio-economic development in India, focusing on inequality, female labor force participation, and the informal sector. While the Indian economy has grown fast over the past two decades, some of these underlying developments have not been equally favorable. With more than one third of the adult population illiterate, India has one of the most unequal education distributions in the world. Because the services sector and certain manufacturing industries in India make intensive use of highly educated workers, growth of these sectors generates little income for the lowly educated population. Consequently, inequality in India rises when these skill-intensive sectors expand.
