Abstract: In this paper, record linkage is applied to detect hidden (or irregular) workers in the Italian labour market. The idea is to trace each single worker in a survey as well as in a set of administrative registers, where the worker should appear if regular. When a worker is sampled by the survey but he does not appear in any of the administrative registers, that worker is identified as irregular. Subsequently, we estimate a logistic regression model to identify the individual and household features, which characterize the typical hidden Italian worker.
