In the present research work an attempt has been made to analyse the spatial patterns of employment rate, regional variations in the level of development and the causal relationship between status of employment (dependent variable) and selected variables of regional development (independent variables) among the twenty four blocks of Gaya district of Bihar. The block boundary has been considered as the smallest unit of study. The study is based on secondary sources of data collected from Directorate of Statistics and Evaluation (Forecast Section), Patna and Office of the Director of Census Operation, Govt. of Bihar, Patna for the years 2001 and 2005.

The overall analysis of the study reveals that there is a positive relationship between the employment rate and level of regional development among all the twenty four blocks of the Gaya district. The seven blocks witnessed the high level of employment rate and regional development and they make four remarkable regions in the southern, south-eastern, north-eastern and south-western parts of the district, while, nine blocks experienced the medium level, situated in the south-central, north-eastern, north-western and south-western parts of the district respectively. However, the remaining north-central and south-western blocks have recorded both the low level of employment rate and regional development in the study area.
