In the developing nation like India unemployment is the matter of concern. Employment, as an economic phenomenon with strong social implications. The global population of young people aged 15 to 24 is more than one billion (IFAD, 2014). Unemployment among rural youth is very high, forty per cent of youth population is vulnerable regarding employment. Youth are the precious segment of the population as they play quite a significant role in development. The study was conducted to know the employment vulnerability of rural youth. This study describes the index that was developed to measure the employment vulnerability of rural youth. The index consisted of 46 statements and pilot study was done in Ringi village of Chamoli and Devar village of Rudraprayag districts which indicate that it is reliable and consistent.
