Abstract

The aim of the work is to shed light on how some determinants, especially in the spheres of family background, differently affect the heterogeneous category of selfemployment across a set of transition economies of Eastern Europe, where more or less restrictive policies and dissimilar liberalization processes have been adopted over time. At this end, three-stage structural multinomial logit models as discrete choice models are estimated on 2005 EU-SILC data. Country-specific differentials are sketched and it emerges how, in some countries, employment choice is devised in a dualist perspective.
