The transition from youth to adult’s life is particularly characterized by the end of schooling attendance and the entrance in the labor market. There are different open possibilities for this transition, and the objective of this working paper is to apprehend some of the features related to it. For men the transition from school to the labor market mainly occurs between the ages of 17 and 19. On the other hand, for women, this transition happens at similar ages, but there is another transition, which is from school to the household. Choices are influenced by the schooling level attained by the girl. Income differentials between sexes show a slight advantage for men. However, when income per worked hour is analyzed, the values were rather similar, indicating that there is a relative homogeneity between young men and young women regarding income per hour in Brazil.
