Abstract

This paper investigates unemployment risk and job prospects of males and females in the two Greece’s most populated regions - Attica and Central Macedonia - during the implementation of the first Community Support Framework (1989-1993). Originality lies in the separate analyses for males and females. The sample is based on anonymous records (micro-data) of the Labour Force Survey for both employed and unemployed at Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics-2 level. Firstly, social and demographic characteristics increasing the odds of being employed are examined - i.e. age, marital status, residence, education and training. Secondly, the issue of whether University graduates have lesser odds of being employed is investigated. The findings indicate that gender differences in odds of being employed appear mainly across education levels. Moreover, higher education attainment increases the odds of being employed particularly for females. The paper delivers conclusions that can be used for comparative research among European regions.
