  1. The table shows the estimates obtained from the regression model indicated in Eq. (2). The estimations also include the sociodemographic, job-related and structural characteristics (without occupational segments) presented in model 3 of Table 3 as control variables. AMEs are the average marginal effects. Cluster-robust standard errors for 144 occupational groups in parentheses; *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001
