Table 5.E presents the percentage distribution
of the labour force by status in employment.
The indicators on status
in employment of the economically active population have
been compiled from the KILM database and are based
on the classification used in population censuses and surveys
in most countries. The statistics presented pertain to the
period between 1990 and 2002. In table 5.E, three status
groups are presented: "wage and salaried workers" corresponds
to employees---persons who work for a public or private
employer and receive remuneration in wages, salary, commission,
tips, piece-rates or pay in kind; "self-employed" comprises
employers and own-account workers---persons who operate
their own economic enterprises or engage independently in
a profession or trade; and "contributing family workers"
refers to persons who work without pay in an economic enterprise
operated by a related person living in the same household.
Proportions of these three groups of workers among all workers
are presented separately for women and men.
