THE EVOLUTION OF JOBS IN THE SOCIAL SECTORS
In this second issue of The Future of Work in Latin America and the Caribbean series, we analyze the evolution of the labor market in the education and health sectors. Not only we saw that the employment rate grew considerably in the last four decades, but also that jobs in education and health are quality jobs - especially for women. In addition, the study projects the number of teachers, doctors, and nurses that the countries in the region will need in the coming years.
