Appendix 10A-2: Personal Characteristics and Insertion in the Labor Market
This appendix gives a brief discussion of the influence of personal characteristics (principally sex, age, and education) on the probability of insertion in the labor market and on specific modalities of insertion. The discussion is limited to MUA and is based on the first quarter 1992 ENEU.The following conclusions may be drawn concerning male and female representation in the WAP according to age and education:
--The probability of being employed is systematically higher for men than for women of the same age and education categories. Nevertheless, the gaps are noticeably greater for uneducated individuals than for those with a college degree.
--The probability of being employed tends to first increase with age, and then decrease. In general, this pattern is more regular for men than for women, and the differences in probabilities from age group to age group tend to be less accentuated for men.
--The probability of being employed is lower for individuals with no education and higher for individuals with a college degree. Nevertheless, at intermediate levels of education the effect of schooling is not as clear.
--Married men have a higher probability of being employed than unmarried men, but married women have a lower probability of being employed than unmarried women.
