Abstract: We present the Random Utility Random Opportunity (RURO) model of job choice
(Aaberge, Dagsvik and Strøm, 1995, and Aaberge, Colombino and Strøm, 1999) and report estimation
results from an application of a version of that model on Belgian data (EU-SILC 2007). We discuss
the effect of education level on the intensity of preference for leisure relative to consumption, on
the intensity of job offers, and on the wage offer distribution. Finally, we report simulation results
with respect to the impact on labour market participation by letting the male catch up the arrears in
educational attainment they currently have with respect to females.
