Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
OK, but it's not just about lawyers. As you note, the bulk of the workforce, and of unemployed people, is composed of salaried workers. But there is an enormous number of people in a very large number of "tertiary" or "service" lines of work who can credibly be either salaried or self-employed. And it is distressingly common to run into, for example, IT contractors in France who disguise large time-gaps in their CV through declared self-(un)employment.

Sure, the statistics functionaries will have thought of this. Doesn't mean they measure it, because it's hard to measure accurately.
