Abstract:
This study is an attempt to trace the growth and characteristics of informal sector employment in Kerala. It has been divided into four sections. The first section describes the growth of formal and informal sector employment in India and Kerala and is followed by an analysis of growth rate and shares of various rounds of NSSO. The second part deals with the characteristics features of employment in the informal sector in Kerala. The third section focuses on the logit regression to determine significant factors associated with the informal sector, and in the last section, it results in the major findings of the analysis.
