What is known about numbers and “earnings“ of the self-employed?
Identifies the self-employed in a number of different sources and examines their â€˜earningsâ€™ using information from household surveys.There is currently very little information available about the so-called “earnings“ of the self-employed, particularly because by definition they do not earn a salary or wage.This article firstly identifies the self-employed in a number of different sources using two perspectives: the individual perspective obtained through self-classification in household surveys and the legal perspective set out by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). Thiswork suggests that self-classification as self-employed in household surveys can be adjusted towards the legal perspective using information on the types of self-employment and payment of tax and National Insurance.The “earnings“ of the self-employed are then examined using information from household surveys and compared with aggregate figures published by HMRC.
