Brian McCaig - Informal employment in a growing and globalizing low-income country


Vietnam is a fast growing, industrializing country where the workforce is shifting from the informal to the formal sector, according to research by Dr. Brian McCaig and his coauthor. Younger, better educated, urban workers are more likely to transition to the formal sector, particularly migrants. However, poorly educated, older rural women face little prospect of entering the formal sector.
