Julio Santiago Hernández, PhD; Edilma De Jesus Desidério, PhD; Nicéforo Aguillar Delgadillo

The purpose of this work is to generate updated knowledge, make the determinants that have been characterizing the returning migrant working population that may show a higher incidence of informal employment. A dichotomous dependent variable model is generated to analyze the dynamics of the labour market, based on the data provided by the National Survey of Occupation and Employment (Encuesta Nacional de Ocupación y Empleo – ENOE), from the first quarter of 2010 to the first quarter of 2017. The results suggest that a higher level of informal employment is associated with lower levels of schooling, living in a rural area and low incomes.
