Asian Development Bank (ADB)


The Informal Sector and Informal Employment in Indonesia [February 2011]


[full-text, 135 pages]


This country report is one of the outputs of Asian Development Bank's (ADB) regional technical assistance (RETA) 6430: Measuring the Informal Sector. The BPS-Statistics Indonesia, one of the three partner statistical agencies of RETA 6430, worked closely with ADB in adapting the mixed survey approach for collecting informal sector and informal employment data, in analyzing the survey results, and in writing this country report.


The country report presents an in-depth analysis for the provinces of Yogyakarta and Banten. Of the total employment in Yogyakarta and Banten in 2009, 89.14% and 75.90% were informal, respectively. The method for estimating the contribution of the informal sector to the gross domestic product, the resulting estimates, labor productivity, and the characteristics of informal sector production units are also discussed in this report.
