The decrease in population growth in Yogyakarta Special Region all this time apparently has not been followed by the decrease of total labor force. In other words, the population growth level decrease (0.58% during 1980-1990), the amount is still too small compare with the growth of labor force (2.21%). It means that the amount of labor force seeking for employment is still increased. This stage can aggravate the situation if the fast growth of labor force does not balance with the effort to widen and create works field. Related to the statement above, to see the work opportunity in Yogyakarta Special Region is necessary, to estimate work opportunity by sector which can be used for labor planning. Using labor elasticity approach to estimate work opportunity is important to know the work opportunity, i.e. which sector capable to accommodate labor force in great quantities without decreasing productivity, and to know which sector can be developed. This research is expected to give information about work opportunity in Yogyakarta Special Region. It is necessary to think about how to widen work opportunity to maintain the growth of labor force every year in order to cope with unemployment.
