Abstract : This work aims to study the interdependence between housing mode and situation on the labor market of the young people according to the gender. To this end, we use the Center for Studies and Research on Qualifications the CEREQ data which relate to a sample of young people who have altogether terminated their studies in 1998 and who have been questioned on their professional course in 2001. We defined three modes of housing with the parents, only and in couple and distinguished between three situations from insertion on labor market Fixed term contract, Unlimited duration contract and Unemployment. We deviate from the work completed in the fields insofar as we explicitly take into account the simultaneous character of the realization of a mode of housing and a mode of insertion in employment. We thus estimate simultaneous equations models between these two groups of variables. The results of estimate confirm and moderate the results establish by the literature. Our results show higher effects of the parental decohabitation on the situation on the labor market for the case of the girls compared to the boys, except for the life in couple which seems to affect, in close proportions, stability on the labor market. In addition, the housing modes of the girls are slightly sensitive as well to their own situation on the labor market as to that their parents, contrary to the boys. The latter more seem to profit from the familiar support to build a residential autonomy and to live alone.
