Assiste-t-on à une transformation des carrières professionnelles vers plus de mobilité ? Une exploitation de l'enquête "Histoire de vie"


  • Guillemette de Larquier
  • Delphine Remillon


This paper considers whether there has been an increase in mobility in the French labour market over the past 60 years. We use data on 6618 careers from a French survey called Histoire de vie – Construction des identités (INSEE). We find a small increase in mobility mainly due to the transformation of career trajectories. We show that the main transformation in carreers is not a generalization of mobility but rather an increase in the risk of unemployment.
