INESAD conceives the labor status of countries as the result of the form of economic, socio-cultural and institutional development. Under this perspective, the lines of research are focused on:

  1. The labor market: associated with the characteristics and degree of business productive development which, together with labor supply, explain employment, labor income, wage inequality and unemployment, among other variables.
  2. The situation of workers: related to their particular and socio-cultural characteristics; taking into account differences in skills and ways of working as well as ethnic, gender and generational groups.
  3. Public institutions and policies: seeking to identify the degree of efficiency and effectiveness of these, and their interrelationships with the economic and socio-cultural characteristics of the country that determine labor results.

The most outstanding products of this area of research are framed in more than 40 studies published in books, specialized journals and Working Papers of the INESAD series. In addition, the need to share and disseminate information and knowledge has led to the development of the Employment, Income and Production Network (EMINPRO) in 2015, which contains:

  • The results of work carried out with partners in the production and dissemination of knowledge.
  • More than 200 indicators on labor force, employment and production, income and inequality, and approximate data on decent jobs for Bolivia updated permanently.
  • More than 400 bibliographic references of studies related to Bolivian labor economics updated every year.
  • Informative and didactic material, including: primers and educational documents, newsletters, studies on Bolivian labor economics, and games based on simulations and experimental economics.
