Evolution of the working conditions of Ibero-American journalists. Longitudinal and comparative study of Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Spain and Portugal
This paper presents a longitudinal and comparative statistical analysis of the results of the first (2007-2011) and second wave (2012-2017) of Worlds of Journalism Study surveys about the profile and working conditions of journalists in Spain, Portugal, Chile, Mexico and Brazil. Despite the disparities between countries, in general the role of women has been revalued, while the working conditions of all professionals working in the media in these sub-regions are increasingly precarious, associated to a decrease in professional stability and the need to exercise multi-employment.
