Abstract

The objective of the present work is to analyze the determining factors for an individual to be a "Genuine Independent Wor-ker". This concept includes self-employed individuals who are not at subsistence levels or who are self-employed but respond to only one customer. Mainly, the role of education in this regard is studied. For the empirical research a LOGIT model and data from Argentinean Homes Survey corresponding to the Second Semester of 2006 are used. The most important result is the positive effect that education, age and the male gender have on the probability to belong to the studied category. El objetivo del presente trabajo es analizar los determinantes de que un individuo sea “Trabajador Independiente Genuino”. Este concepto incluye a los individuos autoempleados cuyo empleo no es de subsistencia ni de dependencia encubierta. Prin-cipalmente, se investiga el rol que tiene la educación como factor determinante. Para la realización del estudio empírico se utilizan, un modelo LOGIT y datos de la Encuesta de Hogares de Argentina correspondientes al Segundo Semestre de 2006. Entre los resultados encontrados se destaca el efecto positivo que tienen la educación, la edad y el género masculino sobre la probabilidad de pertenecer a la categoría estudiada.
