    El objetivo de este trabajo es analizar los factores que más inciden en la determinación de la calidad del empleo dentro del contexto de la Unión Europea, adoptándose el enfoque de los indicadores sociales y empleando información objetiva y subjetiva. Partiendo de una batería de indicadores, se deriva un indicador sintético de calidad del empleo por medio de la metodología de la distancia DP2, que permite estudiar el papel de cada indicador en el indicador sintético y la situación de los diferentes países respecto a la calidad del empleo. The aim of this paper is to do a multidimensional analysis of the concept of work quality of the European workers with objective and subjective information. Though there are several methodologies to measure the work quality, we used the social indicators approach. In this method, the investigated concept is divided into different dimensions which are likewise made up of social indicators. Specifically, we propose to carry out the analysis with measurement of the DP2 distance that will allow us to design synthetics indicators of quality of work.
