GAXIOLA ROBLES LINARES, Sergio Cuauhtémoc; LOZANO KEYMOLEN, Daniel; MONTOYA ARCE, Bernardino Jaciel  and  ROMAN SANCHEZ, Yuliana Gabriela. Job insecurity by occupational groups in the State of Mexico, 2005 and 2015. Región y sociedad [online]. 2019, vol.31, e986. ISSN 2448-4849.

This article analyzes job insecurity by occupational groups of salaried workers in the State of Mexico, in 2005 and 2015. The statistical technique of cluster analysis was used, grouping these workers into four precariousness groups: high, medium, low and not precarious, based on the National Survey on Occupation and Employment of the second semester of 2005 and 2015. Target population is limited to salaried workers, and job insecurity is analyzed using standard variables, without delving into specific cases, through qualitative methodology. The originality of this study is that job insecurity was analyzed in a regional context; moreover, this is a comparative study between 2005 and 2015. One of the most relevant results is the concentration of salaried workers in the extreme groups: high precarious and not precarious. This shows labor polarization existing in the state’s labor market.

Keywords : job insecurity; precarious employment; labor inequality; cluster analysis; labor relations; State of Mexico.
