Abstract: This paper considers the evolution of unemployment and occupation rates, per gender and level of education, in Spain and Portugal, based on the “Labour Force Survey” microdata from 2006 to 2016. The document analyses self-employed and employee rates, contracts (permanent vs temporary) and the distribution of education levels according to gender. The main results suggest that, in the period analysed, these rates have evolved similarly in Portugal and Spain and that, despite the economic crisis, the training and education levels of workers have increased.
