Description:

Perceptions of Costs and Benefits of Informal-Formal Linkages: Market and Street Vendors in Accra, GhanaThis paper investigates ways in which linkages between the informal and formal segments of an economy yield benefits to, or impose costs upon, informal workers, based on self-reporting by market and street vendors in Accra regarding their relationships with the formal economy and its institutions. The data are drawn from the WIEGO Informal Economy Monitoring Study (IEMS) conducted in Accra, Ghana, with a World Bank study of informal household enterprises providing context for the IEMS a study and a basis for interpretation of its findings.
