Abstract

Este artículo examina la evolución del sector de la construcción desde la perspectiva de la ocupación. Para ello, se adoptan dos puntos de vista relevantes: uno de ellos es el temporal, lo que lleva a analizar cómo ha evolucionado la estructura sectorial, en general, y el nivel de empleo de la construcción y ramas afines, en particular, en España en las últimas décadas; la otra perspectiva es la internacional, lo que implica comparar a España con otros países, sobre todo europeos, y preguntarse si el caso español ha sido muy diferente al del resto. This article examines the evolution of the construction sector using the employment perspective. For that, it adopts two relevant points of view: one is temporal, which leads to the analysis of the evolution of the sectoral structure, in general, and of the employment level of construction and related economic activities, in particular, in Spain during the last decades; the other perspective is the international, which implies comparing Spain with other countries (especially, European countries) and inquiring whether the Spanish case has been so different from the rest.
