The figures show that in Uruguay there are not significant changes in the composition of employment by qualifications during the last decade, being the majority group those of medium skilled workers. Even when in the period there was a significant increment in employment, it was not exempt of significant fluctuations which affected differently qualification groups and activity sectors. From these data some long term policy recommendations arise, as courter cyclical policies for skill formation as well as a careful consideration of promoting sector-specific-skills for riskier sectors.
