Data from a cross-sectional sample survey conducted in Februry 2003 on four cohorts of graduating classes in the economics faculty of the Parthenope University of Naples situated in the south of Italy, are used to analyze which individual and background factors influence the transition from university to the first job in order to create a valid support for policy makers. We find that interaction between gender and degree mark plays an important role on the transition. The empirical analysis is contextualized in the general framework of statistical methods generally used for studying the school-to-work transition and two different analyses are conducted with the aim of emphasizing how different statistical methods can provide insight into problem from several point of view.

Abstract

Data from a cross-sectional sample survey conducted in Februry 2003 on four cohorts of graduating classes in the economics faculty of the Parthenope University of Naples situated in the south of Italy, are used to analyze which individual and background factors influence the transition from university to the first job in order to create a valid support for policy makers. We find that interaction between gender and degree mark plays an important role on the transition. The empirical analysis is contextualized in the general framework of statistical methods generally used for studying the school-to-work transition and two different analyses are conducted with the aim of emphasizing how different statistical methods can provide insight into problem from several point of view.
