Cohort replacement in the Spanish labour market

José Ramón Aguín Ferradás, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

The Spanish population structure has changed significantly in the past decades. Also the structure of the Spanish labour market has changed a great deal, due to a vertiginous economic and social development. On one hand, it is noticed that the replacement of workers in each category depends very much on the year we are observing, although we can always talk about a continuous expansion of the Spanish labour market (in quantity of workers). Also it is seen that some job categories are typical of young first-time workers, since others are typical of last occupations of those people who are leaving their active life. On the other hand, it is viewed the feminization of all the categories in the labour market, trend registered from mid-eighties.
