A large amount of literature exists on informality and its nature, causes and consequences. Less attention has been paid to the processes surrounding the transition to formality, although such research has proven particularly useful in policy creation.
In this report, these elements are discussed specifically with young people in mind. In particular, we have tried to respond to certain policy questions, including, why are informality rates higher among young people? Do we need specific policies to address the transition of young people to formality? We address these questions using recent data produced by ILO.
