Agriculture is the main occupation of the people of Dausa. The main crops of the district are wheat, bajra, rapeseed, mustard and groundnuts.

Dausa District was constituted on 10 April 1991 by separating four tehsils, namely Dausa, Baswa, Sikrai, & Lalsot from Jaipur district.[ citation needed ] Mahwa Tehsil of Sawai Madhopur was included in this district on 15 August 1992.[ citation needed ]
