Vanek, Joann, Martha Chen, and Govindan Raveendran. "A Guide to Obtaining Data on Types of Informal Workers in Official Statistics." WIEGO Statistical Brief No. 8, May 2015.
This brief provides a practical guide to collecting and compiling statistics on specific categories of informal workers – home based workers, street vendors, waste pickers and domestic workers. The methods discussed can be used in designing questions in surveys to collect data on these workers. It can also be used in preparing tabulations based on the survey data.
