Abstract: The paper presents an approach to labor market structure in the municipality of Rionegro, Antioquia from the construction of indicators. The analysis was conducted from the supply side, taking information from the municipality's population that was part or not in the labor force and accounts for the measurement of variables such as unemployment, the overall rate of participation, the employment rate, the underemployment rate, among others. The knowledge and use of this information is translated into multiple benefits for local government and the community at large, including the accuracy of policies to provide better working conditions for the municipality and the criteria to better focus and efficiency of municipal spending. The book is divided into three chapters: the first. briefly discusses the major national labor market indicators, between 2001 and 2008. In the second section shows the results of research conducted for the municipality of Rionegro, Antioquia, detailing the methodology, the general characteristics of the population, and profiles of the employed and unemployed. Finally, draws some labor market characteristics muncipio, starting with their living conditions, according to the state of informal employment and ending with the phenomenon of migration
