So far, the preferred proxy for measuring enforcement is the number of labor inspectors per country or regionwhich is useful as an aggregate measure but struggles to overcome the problem of endogeneity. But while several studies have measured the levels of non-compliance in various developing countries, only a few of them provide empirical evidence on the causal effects of enforcement practices on compliance. Figure 1 and the Illustration show how the index can be applied to measure non-compliance in Chile.

Enforcement in a severely resource-constrained environment is difficult when minimum wage and other labor regulations are complex. Finally, local labor market characteristics, such as the unemployment rate, the average wage rate relative to the minimum wage, and the levels of unionization, also play a crucial role.
