Informal Economy Monitoring Study Sector Report: Home-Based Workers 

Home-based workers are one of three urban informal occupational groups – together with street vendors and waste pickers -who are the focus of a 10- city study.

 

The Informal Economy Monitoring Study aims to provide credible, grounded evidence of the range of driving forces, both positive and negative, that affect conditions of home-based work, street vending and waste picking; the responses of informal workers to these driving forces; and the institutions which help or hinder their responses.

 

IEMS uses both qualitative and quantitative methods. The qualitative component consists of a set of focus group tools designed to capture systematically the perceptions and understandings of 75 informal workers (per city), in their own words, in focus group settings. The quantitative component consists of a survey administered to the focus group participants plus another approximately 75 workers who did not participate in focus groups. A total of 447 home-based workers participated in the study. They live in three cities: Ahmedabad, India; Bangkok, Thailand; and Lahore, Pakistan.
