El propósito de este trabajo es examinar cómo se toman las decisiones en el mercado laboral con énfasis en la decisión de ser informal. Inicialmente se supone que las decisiones de los agentes se toman en forma secuencial. Bajo este supuesto, se examina en primer lugar la decisión de participar o no en el mercado laboral. Posteriormente se examina la decisión de emplearse o seguir buscando. Finalmente, una vez que el agente ha decidido emplearse, se examina su decisión sobre la calidad del empleo que aceptará (formal o informal). En esta primera estrategia analítica se utiliza la estimación bivariada o binomial. En una segunda instancia, y en consideración a los posibles sesgos de estimación que resultan del supuesto de secuencialidad –cuando posiblemente la decisión es simultánea-, se realiza una estimación multinomial, la cual, como dice su nombre, presupone múltiples alternativas de elección de forma simultánea.
