Statistical Methodology Series 11 - Identification of informality through labour force surveys

The topic of this report is the identification of informality in line with the resolution concerning statistics on the informal economy adopted at the 21st ICLS. Key findings and conclusions are presented from the different stages of testing, along with their implications for questionnaire design and content. Ensuring that informal employment and informal sector are measured well and with a gender perspective is key to improving our understanding the characteristics of women’s and men’s work.
