Abstract

Over the period of 2010–2019, the total number of people employed in all types of economic activities in the Russian Federation increased by 5.3 %, amounting to more than 71.0 million people. In the dynamics of 2010–2019 the total number of people employed in the unreported sector of the Russian Federation increased from 11482 to 14800 thousand people or 28.9 %. The paper identifies trends in the development of unreported employment in the Russian Federation. The carried-out studies have revealed the growth of in the scale of unreported employment of the population in 2010–2019 due to the reduction of the small business and the entrepreneurs switch to the individual enterprises or self-employed. The highest rates of growth in the number of people, who work under the table, appeared to be in the age group of 65–69. The reverse all-Russian trend is characterized by the dynamics of the number of people employed in the informal sector aged from 15 to 24. To a greater extent, the unreported employment sector involves people aged from 30 to 39. In Russia the level of population involvement in the unreported employment sector increased from 16.4 to 20.6 %. In the structure of unreported employment according to the economic activity, the largest share falls to those who are employed in wholesale and retail trade, repair of vehicles and motorcycles. The regional aspect of the development of unreported employment has shown significant differences.
