Abstract. The article analyzes the intergenerational effect of the parents' occupation towards their adolescent children who work. The hypothesis is to test whether the parents' economic activity influences the probability that adolescents between 12 and 17 years old will engage in dangerous jobs. We developed a measure to quantify multidimensional hazardous work (TPM), whose estimates indicate that 31% of employed adolescents are in TPM. Results show that if adolescents work in the same economic sector as their father, their probability of being employed in a TPM increases by 10.3 percentage points (pp). In contrast, if it is the same economic activity as the mother, it reduces between 5.5 and 6.4 pp.
