Abstract: This paper analyzes the labor market segmentation in Venezuela in 2009 based on the methodology of Multiple Correspondence Analysis. Empirical results show that gender and higher education are elements segmenting the labor market in terms of occupational group, type of industry, employment sector, firm size, and level of income. Results not only show that in Venezuela investing in human capital increases the opportunity to access to better working conditions, but also that there is evidence of the existence of labor supply, institutional and occupational segregation.
