- Engendering informality statistics:gaps and opportunities
Informality is a dynamic and multidimensional concern that demands gender-sensitive data. In 2018, globally, more than 60% of employment was informal.

Also, women in the informal economy are often in the most unprotected situations - as domestic workers, home-based workers and contributing family workers - where a lack of visibility can increase their vulnerability.
