Abstract

In Colombia, the labour market is characterized by the multiplication of atypical forms of employment. These forms are beyond the classic labour market analysis and demand the creation of tools adapted to the specific contexts of each country. The concept of quality of employment seems to respond to the failures of the Decent work concept, but leaves out any legal concept. The authors with the help of an original methodology, Multiple Correspondence Analysis, construct a multidimensional and interdisciplinary quality of employment indicator that allows to transcend the classical typologies. This indicator enables an accurate description of the labour market in the city of Bogota for 2013.

Keywords: Colombian labour market, Multiple Correspondence Analysis, Quality of employment index, Univariate clustering, Interdisciplinarity

JEL Classification: J21, J24, O17, O54
