In this research study there were applied Multinomial Logistic Regression models to examine the socio-economic factors that were responsible conducting individuals to be part of the employment or not. As a result of the multinomial regression model, the most significant factor to consider here is that each one tells the effect of the predictors of risk on the probability of success in that category, in comparison to the reference category. For computing the multinomial logistic regression model it was used the multinom function from the nnet package in R.
