This project is a new collaboration between ICTD and WIEGO on a large-scale survey to study the taxes paid by informal workers in urban Accra. It seeks to explore the prevalence and gendered nature of informal taxation in Accra, Ghana, while also addressing the scarcity of systematic data on these issues through novel data collection that relies on a mixed methods approach, close local partnerships and a new sampling frame.
