    Entre los principales efectos de la actual crisis económica en España se encuentra la gran destrucción de puestos de trabajo, superando actualmente la tasa de paro el 22%. Ante esta situación, las actuaciones de los poderes públicos se encaminan hacia la recuperación económica y, así la generación de empleo, incidiendo en la cantidad y no tanto en la calidad laboral. El objetivo de este artículo es medir la calidad del empleo en las Comunidades Autónomas españolas antes y durante la crisis, utilizando el método de la distancia P2 para componer un Indicador Sintético de la Calidad del Trabajo Dinámico entre 2000 y 2010. Los resultados del estudio muestran un empeoramiento de la calidad laboral en las distintas Comunidades durante el período analizado acompañado de un incremento de la polarización entre regiones en cuanto a los niveles de la calidad del empleo. Among the main effects of the current economic crisis in Spain is the great loss of jobs, the unemployment rate exceeding 22%. In this situation, the actions of government aim to begin economic recovery and so create jobs. It affects the work quantity and not quality. The objective of this article is to measure the employment quality in the Spanish regions before and after the crisis. To achieve this goal, we use the P2 distance method to compose a Synthetic Dynamics Indicator of Quality of Work from 2000 to 2010. The study results show a deterioration in job quality in the different regions during the period accompanied by an increase in spatial polarization in terms of levels of job quality.
