BLANCO-HERRERO, David; OLLER ALONSO, Martín  and  ARCILA CALDERON, Carlos. Working conditions of Ibero-American journalists. Temporary and geographical differences in Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Spain and Portugal. Comun. soc [online]. 2020, vol.17, e7636.  Epub Aug 30, 2021. ISSN 0188-252X.

This article presents a longitudinal and comparative statistical analysis of the results of the first (2007-2011) and second wave (2012-2017) of Worlds of Journalism Study surveys about the sociodemographic profile and working conditions of journalists in Spain, Portugal, Chile, Mexico and Brazil. Despite the disparities between countries, in general, the role of women has been revalued, while the working conditions of all professionals working in the media are increasingly precarious, associated to a decrease in professional stability and the need to exercise multi-employment.

Keywords : Worlds of Journalism Study; working conditions; journalists profile; IberoAmerica; journalists; longitudinal and comparative study.
