Abstract: A household survey is conducted in the three divisions of Southern Punjab, Pakistan in order to examine employment patterns in the formal and informal sectors. The present study aims to examine competing views of informal sector employment in Southern Punjab. The result indicates that some human capital and socio-economic variables play substantial role in determining the participation decision of workers in the informal sector.
