La protección social está usualmente ligada a las condiciones de empleo. En este trabajo se caracteriza a los niveles, tendencias y estructura de la protección social de los trabajadores en América Latina, con especial énfasis en la relación entre protección y condición de empleo. Para ello se trabaja sobre una muestra de encuestas de hogares de varios países de la región: Argentina, Brasil, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Guatemala, México, Nicaragua y Perú. El trabajo presenta un conjunto de estadísticas sobre cobertura de contratos, duración del vínculo laboral, derechos de jubilación, indemnizaciones, seguro de desempleo, seguro de salud, sindicalización y programas de asistencia social para distintos grupos laborales, para cada país y cada año. Se enfatiza la utilidad de las encuestas de hogares como fuentes de información para estudios representativos sobre protección social y empleo, pese a que se destacan las deficiencias que todavía tienen estas encuestas en términos de cobertura y comparabilidad.
