In this research study there were applied Regression models to examine the socio-economic factors that could influence the working time on the labor market. As a result of the regression models applied, the most significant factors to consider here are the sex of the employed people, age, education level, residence areas where they live, the activity and the occupational status on the labour market. For computing the regression models it was used the glm function from the nlme package in R.
This research will contribute to know the determinants of working time in Romania. The data from a Romanian labor force survey 2013 is used for this study.
