Yucatán is the third state in the country with the best performance in the entry of women into the labor market, as revealed by the report “Estados Con Lupa De Género” by the Mexican Institute for Competitiveness (IMCO).

In turn, as detailed by the Institute, the state is placed in fourth position as the entity with the best working conditions for women. The first place was obtained by Mexico City, while Oaxaca occupies the last place. However, regarding the issue of transportation, research shows that, in Yucatán, 13% of women have stopped using public transportation for fear of being victims of a crime.

For the third consecutive year, IMCO published this report as a tool that allows comparing the state’s capacity to promote economic participation and the quality of employment of women.

Regarding the entry of women into the labor market, this indicator analyzes the barriers that women face to join the paid economy, considering indicators such as preparation, available time, labor supply, and gender violence.

In this aspect, Yucatán was placed in third place, with a score of 74.0, below Mexico City and Baja California, which occupied first and second place, respectively.

Regarding the permanence of women in the labor market, the state ranked ninth, with a score of 51.9. This indicator measures the working conditions that women face and can determine whether they remain or leave the paid economy.

However, the report reveals that in Yucatán 63.9% of employed women are working informally; Furthermore, 37.5% of women are in a situation of working poverty, that is, they have a labor income lower than the cost of the basic food basket.

On the other hand, according to data from the National Survey of Occupation and Employment New Edition (ENOE), of the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi), published in 2023, the informally employed population in Yucatán increased from 724,446 people in the fourth quarter of 2021 to 735,004 in the fourth quarter of 2022.

 This increase is mainly attributed to the increase in people employed in the informal sector, which grew from 398,281 to 400,841 in the same period. In addition, an increase was observed in employment outside the informal sector, which went from 326,165 to 334,163 in the same period.
