- Subtitle: WIEGO Statistical Brief No. 14
The international standards concerning a statistical definition of informal employment and concerning statistics of employment in the informal sector provide considerable flexibility in applying the definitions in different national settings.
Using a statistical approach, this paper shows that some of the flexibility of the international standards and national differences are not necessary and tools can be developed to narrow the differences.
