Abstract

Informal sector employment suffers from not only inadequate and irregular earnings but they also remain exposed to a variety of vulnerabilities. Available research has been general in nature as most of the time, the analysis has remained narrative and there has been no systematic attempt to arrive at a framework to conceptualise and quantify the incidence of vulnerability in informal manufacturing sector so as to examine its correlates and the related characteristics that influence the exposure to vulnerability. Such lacunae in research provide us an opportunity to arrive at a holistic framework for the quantification of vulnerability in informal manufacturing sector. This paper discussing various conceptual and analytical issues implicit in the quantification of vulnerability exposure in informal manufacturing sector serves as a first step towards that direction.
