Abstract

Examination of economic activities and employment in four boom towns of the Ecuador Amazon or Oriente : Puyo, Nueva Loja, Tena and Coca. Data were obtained from the 1990 national population census and from field observations of urban establishments in 1993. Results of the establishment survey are compared to those of similar studies in the Brazilian Amazon. Abundant self-employment in an informal sector and a large portion of the labor force in the public service sector is found. - (SLD)
