dc.description.abstractEnglish: The informal sector has gained prominence in developing countries during the past two decades, mainly as a result of the formal sector’s inability to absorb growing populations and an increasing number of individuals hoping to secure an income through selfemployment in the informal sector. The situation in South African cities is no exception as the unemployment rate has remained between 24% and 30% since 2000. The emphasis on informal trading in cities necessitates a more in-depth understanding of the informal sector and street traders at city level, for which relevant data are scarce or too general. By using data gathered among street traders in four major metropolitan areas of South Africa, this article seeks to provide a current profile of individuals that are involved in street trading in South African cities.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Die informele sektor het in ontwikkelende lande gedurende die laaste twee dekades in prominensie gegroei hoofsaaklik as gevolg van die formele sektor wat nie in staat is om die bevolkingsaanwas te absorbeer nie, en meer en meer individue wat hoop om ‘n inkomste te genereer deur middel van selfstandige werk in die informele sektor. Die situasie in Suid-Afrikaanse stede is geen uitsondering nie, ook in die lig van die werkloosheidskoers wat tussen 24% en 30% gewissel het sedert 2000. Die klem op informele handel in stede maak meer in-diepte kennis van die informele sektor en straatverkopers op stedelike vlak noodsaaklik. Relevante data hieroor is dikwels skaars en baie generies. Hierdie artikel maak gebruik van data wat ingesamel is onder straatverkopers in vier belangrike metropolitaanse gebiede in Suid-Afrika, om ‘n hedendaagse profiel saam te stel van individue wat betrokke is by straatverkope in Suid-Afrikaanse stede.af
