Abstract

Through the historical study of numbers, it will be known how employment, in general, and public employment, in particular, has been suffering a detriment over the years. Likewise, by means of comparative tables, it will be reflected how the department of Boyacá, in Colombia, has been losing ground in the export field, generating lag in the economic activity and a higher unemployment rate, which converges in a low competitiveness index in the country. The economy is nourished by numbers because its strict use allows identifying the magnitude of the economic problems and reduces the uncertainty in decision-making. For which a set of indicators will be observed, such as unemployment and external trade in the department of Boyacá, which make it possible to design, to measure and to evaluate the policies performance for decision making.

Keywords: numbers, indicators, unemployment, external trade
