Informality persists as a widespread phenomenon in the labour markets worldwide. As countries look to tackle the vulnerability challenge in the informal economy, it is essential to consider the context of their households and to monitor informality at both the individual and household levels. Monitoring household-level characteristics is essential to provide answers to a range of information needed to develop an effective social protection extension strategy and to tackle vulnerability among groups exposed to informality.

The OECD Key Indicators of Informality based on Individuals and their Households (KIIbIH) database, is a new dataset that builds upon household surveys to provide comparable indicators and harmonised data on informal employment, well-being of informal workers and their dependents, in 42 countries.

The webinar introduced the KIIbIH as a new tool to help policy makers design relevant policy interventions for informal workers, which considers the domestic trends of their countries.
