The personal features involved in the incorporation into the labour force are studied, together with how this incorporation is carried out in Galicia. Three logistic regression models are built with this purpose. The first one is an economical activity model, where the probability that a person of working age will be economically active is estimated. The second one is an employment model, where the goal of estimation is the probability that an economically active person will become employed. The last model is a hired hand employment model, which is focused on the probability that an employed person will become a hired hand worker. It is obtained from the empirical analysis that sex is the most relevant feature, and that the effect coming from other variables on the probabilities under study, also depends on sex.
