Defining a Multidimensional Index of Decent work for Mexico

Research Fields: 
Type of the publication: 

According to Mexican Labor Laws and ILO Regulations we build a multidimensional index of decent work using Alkire and Foster´s methodology and apply it to panels of the National Survey of Occupation and Unemployment for Mexico (ENOE). This index is multidimensional and takes into account eight dimensions, one monetary and seven non-monetary, which are labor income, hours worked, social security, family care, sufficient work, protection to labor rights, respect to labor rights and job stability. As a result we manage to classify the labor status in four types: decent work, non-decent work, MEL (vulnerable by minimum labor standards) and wage vulnerable.
