FERRADA-BORQUEZ, Luz María  y  FERRADA-BORQUEZ, Mauricio Alejandro. Employment quality of the elderly in Chile, an active aging factor. Pap. poblac [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.95, pp.43-63. ISSN 2448-7147.  https://doi.org/10.22185/24487147.2018.95.03.

It has been established that the aging rate of the population in Chile is growing, accompanied by the increased participation of senior citizens in the job market. The aim of this study is to determine the employment conditions of elderly people in Chile. To this end, partial and synthetic indicators are estimated, in order to reveal the situation regarding the following factors: social security, contractual arrangements, working hours and working income. Significant differences are obtained in the estimated indices between men and women, and according to educational level, geographical area of residence, company size and economic sector in which they work. In turn, the greatest levels of disparity were found in the conditions relating to social security and employment contract. These results allow us to argue in favor of targetted public policies in the context of a active aging.
