                       Abstract

This research work examined the role of informal Sector in employment generation in 

Ilorin, kwara state Nigeria. The study made use of primary data obtained from 100 

respondents from Ilorin West Local Government in kwara state through the copies of 

questionnaire administered. The data collected was analysed using descriptive statistics 

and statistical package for social sciences (SPSS). The outcome of the empirical 

investigations showed that informal sector contribute immensely in providing several 

jobs and income for the individual household members who were either unemployed or 

underpaid in their formal jobs. The findings of this study suggests that if government can 

formulate and establish sound economic policies having in mind to involve the informal 

sector as an agent of change and promotion of the social economic development, it would 

go a long way in providing more employment opportunities. 

Keywords: Informal sector, Employment Generation, Income.
