Abstract: This paper investigates the structure of the labor market in Nicaragua and is aimed at understanding the determinants of the choice between a number of segments, namely inactivity, unemployment, agriculture, formal and informal sector. In addition, a model with a separate participation equation is estimated: it allows understanding that age is mainly a supply side factor, while education is an important element determining employers’ choice. Information networks, captured by the presence of a household member working in the formal sector, and geographical barriers to mobility also play a leading role.
