Неформальная занятость и субъективный социальный статус: пример России

  Numerous studies of informal employment were focused on its possible impact on the income of informal workers. However consequences of informal employment for socioeconomic position of workers and  social inequality in general couldn’t be reduced to the monetary changes. This article presents the results of  the empirical study of the subjective social status of informal workers in Russia in 2000–2010. The study  was carried out on the basis of a large nationally representative panel: the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring  Survey of the Higher School of Economics (RLMS – HSE) for 2000–2010. Dynamics in average subjective  social status of different categories of informal employment is investigated and compared to the formal employment, unemployment and economically inactive state. Special attention is paid to the analysis of informal employment as a factor of subjective social status estimates using different econometric techniques.
