Abstract

La tasa de desempleo, como un indicador de desempeño económico y social para países en desarrollo, suele arrojar falacias que no permiten dar cuenta de la manera como se ocupan los trabajadores de una sociedad. De este modo, surge la necesidad de estudiar qué está sucediendo con la calidad del empleo que, para efectos de este documento, se ha decidido abordar desde la informalidad, el subempleo y la satisfacción reportada por los trabajadores es sus ocupaciones. A partir de una descripción de algunas variables que forman parte de estas tres dimensiones, se logró determinar que, aunque hombres y mujeres manifiestan similares índices de satisfacción en sus trabajos, la informalidad recae en mayor medida en los hombres, mientras que el subempleo recae de forma similar en ambos sexos.
