This publication, Women and Men in the Informal Economy: A Statistical Picture (Second Edition), is a significant step forward from the Women and Men in the Informal Economy: A Statistical Picture (2002) in that it provides, for the first time, direct measures of informal employment inside and outside informal enterprises for 47 countries. The publication also presents statistics on the composition and contribution of the informal economy as well as on specific groups of urban informal workers. Non-technical language and clear, simple statistical tables will make the information easy to understand by a large and varied audience. This publication is intended to respond to the needs of different users, including researchers, statisticians, policymakers, employers’ and workers’organizations, including organizations of informal workers.
