Faculty Profile

Dr. Hadia Majid

Assistant Professor

Department Of Economics

Hadia Majid is an Assistant Professor of Economics at Lahore University of Management Sciences. A Fulbright Scholar, she holds a PhD in Development Economics from The Ohio State University, an MA in Economics from The Ohio State University, an MSc in Economics from University of Warwick, and a BSc in Economics from Lahore University of Management Sciences.

Her research interests include economics of the household, parental decision-making, and human capital acquisition. Her previous work evaluates the Mexican conditional cash transfer program at the intra-household level. She has also examined the role of parental perceptions of child quality on educational outcomes in rural Punjab.

More recent research has looked at public goods provision in slums within Lahore, Pakistan – linking household attributes, especially political affiliation, to households’ ability to bargain for and obtain public goods from the state. Currently, her work is centered on labor markets. Here, her projects include mapping various aspects of the female labor force participation in Pakistan over the past 25 years, examining the constraints and vulnerabilities of women in the urban informal economy, and the links between macroeconomic growth and gendered employment. She is also running a quasi-experiment studying the impact of the Lahore Rapid Bus Transit on labor market outcomes, and is conducting a primary and secondary data based study documenting 'decent' working conditions in Pakistan.
