It is not only the sheer volume of such work that is important; so too is the distribution of such work. Up until now, the presupposition has sometimes been that households excluded from or having a marginal position in one subsystem of work (for example, formal employment) can compensate for this exclusion by their fuller inclusion in other subsystems (self-provisioning, community work, paid informal work). Throughout the advanced economies, however, the vast majority of studies have displayed that this is not the case.

Up until now, the presupposition has sometimes been that households excluded from or having a marginal position in one subsystem of work (for example, formal employment) can compensate for this exclusion by their fuller inclusion in other subsystems (self-provisioning, community work, paid informal work). Throughout the advanced economies, however, the vast majority of studies have displayed that this is not the case. Households that have people in employment also conduct more selfprovisioning, more unpaid community exchange and more paid informal work than jobless households.

However, it may help to explain why some unemployed people think they are better-off without a job than in a (particular) job, or why many unemployed people do not want to accept any job offered to them. Second, the social circumstances in which the unemployed live and that influence their resources, experiences, options and choices, have changed. The development of welfare systems is of course very important in this respect. Although these systems have not put an end to poverty or removed processes of stigmatisation of unemployed people, they have increased resources unemployed people dispose of in absolute terms, which will influence the attractiveness and importance of jobs and labour market participation.
