Abstract: We identify the main characteristics of informal jobs and their evolution between 2001 and 2010 from national employment surveys on cross-section over 2001-2010 conducted by the ONS in Algeria. We mobilize a descriptive analysis and econometric analysis of the probability of being in informal employment. It shows that this period of informal employment in Algeria seems to have a traditional function of "anti-crisis" strategy. It mainly affects young people, women, less educated, those who operate in the informal sector or in the construction sector, and those who are not permanent employees, self-employed or unpaid family workers. Keywords: Algeria, informal employment, logit model.
