Data generating project on informal sector activities in urban areas in South Africa

Principal Investigator: Ranchhod, V

The overall objective of the project is to generate, from a number of censuses, a consistent dataset that measures the amount of informal sector activity occurring in eight locations in urban townships in South Africa. This includes an enumeration of the number of informal sector enterprises, as well as some information about their activities, volume of trade, barriers to growth and the amount of employment that they generate.
