Abstract

La calidad del trabajo ha ocupado recientemente un lugar central en los estudios del trabajo en América Latina. Dicho interés ha estado limitado por dos elementos centrales: un apropiado marco teórico y herramientas metodológicas para su medición. Este texto busca abordar tales limitaciones. Primero, coloca la definición y discusión de la calidad del trabajo en un marco teórico amplio, que considera su carácter multidimensional a partir de su relación con el concepto y análisis de la calidad de vida. Segundo, presenta una estimación de un índice compuesto de calidad del trabajo con base en la técnica estadística de análisis de componentes principales, para llamar la atención sobre el tema y contribuir en sentar las bases para su medición y seguimiento.
