Abstract

El objetivo del presente documento es elaborar un diagnóstico sobre la informalidad laboral y su relación con la calidad del empleo en la región Pacífica colombiana. Los resultados muestran que en el Pacífico dos de cada tres empleados se ubican en el sector informal. Esta observación tiene implicaciones claves para la calidad del empleo y el bienestar de la población. En efecto, la región Pacífica presenta baja calidad del empleo, que es más crítica para los individuos con bajos niveles educativos, los empleados domésticos y, por ubicación geográfica, para los individuos del departamento de Narino. ******ABSTRACT: The purpose of this document is to conduct an analysis of labor informality and quality of employment in the Pacific region in Colombia. The results show that on average two out of three individuals are employed in the informal sector. This finding has key implications for the quality of employment and well-being of the population. Indeed, the Pacific region has low quality jobs, which is more dramatic for individuals with low education levels, domestic workers, and for individuals from the department of Narino.
