Social security systems in the Caribbean continue to face the problem of non-compliance which in turn can impact negatively on the coverage and sustainability of these systems. The primary objective of this study is therefore to determine what factors contribute to the decisions of workers and employers to comply or not comply with social security for the small island developing Caribbean state of Anguilla. The thesis builds on the Fisher Tax Compliance Model and uses a new data set derived from a stratified random sample-based questionnaire to examine the determinants of social security compliance in the small island developing state of Anguilla, especially focusing on this growing informal sector. The preliminary findings indicate that for Anguilla, there is a significant relationship between the decisions to comply and the following characteristics: education; perceptions of good governance; and socio demographic characteristics specifically gender and religion.
