Journal of Economic Regulation, , Vol. 5 (no. 4),
p. 92-104

Conceptual approaches to research informal economy and informal employment (structural, Marxist approach, legalistic) are summarized, their basic descriptions are revealed. Comparative analysis of the approaches under discussion is implemented. A significant expansion of the original object of study is a result of the analysis. The necessity of studying informal employment, understanding of this phenomenon and the necessity of its regulation are justified. Such difficulties of researching of this phenomenon as hidden nature of the subject of inquiry, diffuse interface, shortage of reliable information, lack of well-defined criteria of informality are marked out. The factors influencing on the development of the informal employment in the region are revealed in the paper. The grouping of the subject of the Russian Federation are held for this purpose. The following relations between the factors under discussion and the rate of the informal employment are determined.
