    This article analyzes the evolution of the labor market in the metropolitan regions of Brazil over the period 1995-2005. The employed population is characterized by variables relating to working conditions and belonging to different sectors of activity. The study is based on joint analysis of tables - STATIS method. It allows characterizing the evolution of trajectories of Brazilian metropolitan regions. The results highlight the different trajectories of metropolitan areas in the decade beyond the usual divide between North-Northeast and South-Southeast. Indeed, the trajectories of certain metropolitan areas deemed less developed show a significant improvement in the main indicators used, however, that those of metropolitan areas among the most developed are the opposite. This foreshadows a relative reduction of regional inequalities or even a questioning of some Brazilian metropolitan hierarchies.
