The purpose of this paper is to carry out an analysis of the manner in which the professional status of individuals influences the mobility of the Romanian population. In order to reach this objective we studied the scientific literature which attempts to define labour market, active population, employed population and the unemployed. Within the case study carried out for this paper we started from the idea that the professional status influences the natural mobility of the population and we set the following independent variables: the employment and the unemployment rate in Romania. In order to determine whether there is a relation between the professional status of individuals and the natural mobility of the population in Romania we chose three large sectors for the dependent variables: marriage rate, divorce rate and birth rate. The statistical data were taken from the Romanian National Institute of Statistics, and they refer to a period of 24 years, namely between 1991 and 2014. The evolution of the employment and the unemployment rates over the 24 years were presented in graphical form using the Microsoft Excel, while the descriptive statistics and the value of the coefficients which analyse the presence or absence of certain correlations were done with the statistical software SPSS 17 (Statistical Package for Social Sciences). The conclusions show that the increase in the number of individuals who have a job will also cause an increase in the number of marriages, while unemployment rate does not influence marriage rate.
