El objetivo de esta investigación es analizar la vulnerabilidad en el empleo de la fuerza laboral urbana, por etnicidad y por género, para el período 2004-2006. Definimos vulnerabilidad en el empleo como la probabilidad de que la situación laboral de un trabajador empeore respecto a su situación inicial. Empleando los datos del panel urbano 2004-2006 de las ENAHO (INEI), encontramos que las mujeres, los trabajadores indígenas, los jóvenes, los trabajadores mayores de 45 años, y aquellos con menor educación son los grupos con mayor probabilidad tanto de dejar la fuerza laboral como de ver reducida la calidad en su empleo. La educación de calidad es importante para reducir estos tipos de vulnerabilidad.
