The general framework of contingency tables is used to develop previous methodological contributions on labour matching data. A contingency table is generated by the combination of the multiple characteristics that define each row and column category (worker and job categories in our field). In this context, a dimension problem arises that has to be addressed. Two key concepts related to the labour matching process are defined: propensity to match and similarity in the matching. Both measures can be divided into partial components which allow a better understanding of the underlying structure of the data. On the basis of the methodological contribution proposed, an application to the Spanish labour market is conducted, which relies on a large database of administrative microdata (Continuous Working Life Sample, MCVL). A scenario in which each worker category and each job category is defined by the combination of two attributes (location and occupational level) is displayed.
