The development potential of the informal economy in Romania
Quantitative research (national representative, n = 1,200 respondents) and qualitative (in-depth interviews with people working in the informal economy). The quantitative study aimed at identifying informal activities in the household economy (diversity, positioning in relation to the income level, socio-economic profile of the family and values of those involved in such activities). In addition, the qualitative study looked at the entrepreneurial aspects of informal work (costs, investments, up-dates to market dynamics, advertising, training).
