Social protection of self-employed per country

The approach adopted by MISSCEO, as regards the coverage of self-employed persons, is to include references to self-employed persons and civil servants in the Comparative Tables if they are included under a general scheme for the economically active population. This means schemes that are based on the performance of economic activity and not on any distinction between employees and self-employed persons. Schemes based on economic activity can be identified when the benefits received by self-employed persons and employees are the same. There may be differences between the rates of financial contributions made by these parties or the conditions applied.

Separate schemes for self-employed persons, where the amount of benefit paid differ from that of employees are not included in the MISSCEO comparative tables. In view of the varying structures of the protection systems, a representation in the form of "Comparative Tables" characteristically utilised by MISSCEO quickly came up against certain limits: Table XIII would become far and away the most extensive of all tables, which had less to do with the wealth of information than with the layout of the table itself. Instead, MISSCEO has produced the short description of the social protection of the self-employed in this annex to the tables.
