En este trabajo se analizan los determinantes de la participación en el Programa Jefes de Hogar (PJH), implementado en la Argentina en abril de 2002. Se avanza también en la descripción de la inserción ocupacional de los beneficiarios del programa. Para el examen de la participación se propone una metodología de estimación de la población blanco del programa, la que permite a su vez evaluar su eficacia para garantizar el Derecho Familiar a la Inclusión Social, fin principal manifiesto en el decreto de creación del PJH. La participación es evaluada en función de un conjunto de variables individuales, familiares y ocupacionales. Dado que la posición en el mercado de trabajo aparece como el principal requisito para participar en el programa, entre las variables ocupacionales se profundiza el análisis observando la trayectoria laboral previa de los actuales beneficiarios. La fuente de datos más importante de esta investigación es la Encuesta Permanente de Hogares (que cubre 32 centros urbanos de la Argentina); y el período examinado es el comprendido entre las ondas de mayo de 2001 y octubre de 2002.
