The present paper analyzes gender differences in the labour mobility of Russian youth based on the RLMS-HSE database for 2006-2016. The focus of the study is on the econometric estimation of the factors that influence differences in men’s and women’s mobility patterns and on the analysis of the consequences of horizontal and vertical transitions in the labour market. The study consists of three main chapters, which reveals the concept of labour mobility, methodology and data description, empirical estimates of the scale and dynamics of labour mobility of young men and women and logit model estimations of the causes and consequences of youth labour mobility by gender. The results of the study demonstrate high mobility intensity and gender differences in internal and external mobility of young people. However, both horizontal and vertical transitions can be a successful strategy for men and women as it leads to a better job-matching, higher wages, subjective social status and job satisfaction.
