The Shadow Economy: Illicit Work and Household Production: A Microanalysis of West Germany
This microanalysis of the shadow economy is on informal family income achieving strategies. In particular, the authors analyze both sexes' paid illicit work as well as unpaid work in household production based on the representative West German Sfb 3-Secondary Occupation Survey 1984. They estimate the influence of various socioeconomic variables including a legal occupation. As a result, illicit work and household production 'do-it-yourself' activities are important informal family income achieving strategies. The respective regional state of the formal economy or one's own activities in social networks is of greater importance for informal economic activities than an individual income from formal economic activities.
