Sectorial Structure, qualification characteristics and patterns of labour mobility
The paper has two main objectives: First, to research if workers show significant differences in labour opportunities. Second, to test the hypothesis that tertiarisation has important effects explaining it. Our hypothesis is double: - tertiarization has relevant effect on the structure of labour demand by skills. - the labour opportunities of workers can be influenced by the skills developed in the previous jobs and their concordance between sectoral changes. From a methodology point of view, our approach implies to study labour transition data of workers, sectoral change and its qualification implications. In order to research the previous argument, we analyse the labour mobility within European Countries. Therefore, data used in the paper come from the European Community Household Panel (ECHP). All descriptive analysis have been carried out and, in the order hand, the results from dynamic logit panel data model point out that the relation of workers with tertiarization and its implications [approximated by their previous labour situation (sector and skill)] are significant explaining differences observed in labour transitions and its characteristics.
