Hi Louise - I couldn't have expressed this better! Not only is it important to have a better understanding of the links between formal and informal activities (whether households and/or enterprises), but also to delve into the differences within and across urban regions driving productivity and other outcomes. The lack of data and information on the informal sector in most countries doesn't help, but in some of our work on urbanization in Africa we're ploughing ahead anyway. Thank you for your comment and terrific ideas, Megha.
