Abstract: In developing countries, particularly in Algeria, the determinants of the integration of individuals to the labor market remain poorly understood. We exploit two employment surveys conducted among Algerian households in 1997 and 2007 by the National Office of Statistics. This work aimed at analyzing the determinants of participation of men and women in economic activities, on the one hand, and also appreciates the role of individual characteristics in the choice of tenure, on the other hand. We use two econometric methods : a binary logistic regression and a segmentation technique. It appears that women's participation in economic activities is logically different from the one of men. For women, human capital (education and vocational training) strongly determines participation to the labor market. For men, it is rather the age which is crucial. In general, participation to the labor force is determined by other factors than individual characteristics, such as household characteristics, household head and location in urban or rural.
