The informal economy in Romania

We understand by informal economy (IE) in the present work the economic activity that is not reported to the statistical office, although it should be according to the procedures. In the present study we plan to:
i. Describe the overall strategies of the unemployed in the Romanian transitional economy, and offer a few predictors for each strategy.
ii. Test the extent to which IE is an alternative in the labor market
iii. Provide collateral data for an evaluation of the dimension of IE in Romania, since existing data is, again, contradictory.
