The aim of this paper is to study which are the main determinants of the transition rate probability of leaving the education system and enter into different labour market states. Here, we made an analysis of several controversial terminological aspects of the concepts used to define the more specific variables of the inquire (The Continuous Spanish Population Survey ¿EPAEnlazada¿ (1992-1996)). Among others, the main results suggest that even if the women investmore than men in education, the school-to-work transition results do not improve. Also we obtain empirical evidence in favour of the fact that is more important for leaving the education systemto finish the schooling degree than having a higher level of education. The later does not improve the probability of obtain a job in the labour market even if it is an important factor that affects thecharacteristics of the jobs that they can acquire. Los jóvenes al salir del sistema educativo, pueden situarse en dos ámbitos: la inactividad o el mundo del trabajo. En este estudio se aborda la influencia de las características personales y familiares en la salida del sistema educativo y el paso a la ocupación, al empleo o a la inactividad. La base de datos utilizada es la EPA-enlazada que abarca el periodo 1992-1996 y seleccionando a los jóvenes de 16 a 34 años de edad. Entre los resultados más destacados están en primer lugar, que a pesar de que las mujeres se educan más, este hecho no mejora su posición frente a los varones en cuanto a su inserción laboral; y en segundo lugar, que la titulación alcanzada por los jóvenes influye en la decisión de salir del sistema educativo mientras que el haber alcanzado una titulación más alta no favorece la inserción laboral.
