This paper presents a longitudinal and comparative statistical analysis of the results of the first (2007-2011) and second wave (2012-2017) of surveys of the Worlds of Journalism Study on the profile and working conditions of journalists in Spain, Portugal, Chile, Mexico, and Brazil. Despite the disparities between countries, we observe that in general the role of women has been revalued, while the working conditions of media professionals have become more precarious, exposed to less professional stability and the need for multiple employment.
