The empirical evidence from less developed post-transition countries shows that the high unemployment is often coupled with a high rate of informal economy, a phenomenon also known as ‘shadow puzzle’. The aim of this paper is to assess the interplay between unemployment and informal work practices of unemployed workers in Macedonia, which will shed light and to some extent clarify the ‘shadow puzzle’. For this purpose we use results from a survey carried out on a sample of registered unemployed workers in order to identify the profile of unemployed who are informally employed. In addition, we develop a model that explains the relationship of job creation in the formal and informal sector with respect to unemployment.
