Title:Empirical measurement of the relative size and productivity of intermediate sector imployment: some estimates from Ghana
Author:Steel, William F.ISNI
Periodical:Manpower and Unemployment Research in Africa
Geographic term:Ghana
Subject:small enterprises
Abstract:The 'intermediate' or 'small-scale' sector fills an important analytical gap left by the common dichotomisation of the urban economy into highly productive 'modern' establishments and 'informal' activities which add little or nothing to total output. The present article reports results of a 1973 enumeration of small businesses in Accra, Ghana, designed to analyse the relative size and composition of employment at intermediate levels of productivity. Notes, tab. For a critical examination of the concept of the 'intermediate' sector as presented by Steel, see the article by Stuart W. SINCLAIR in Manpower & Unemployment Res., 9 (1976), 2, p. 55-59.
