The main labor indicators in four migratory regions are used to find out how the conditions of this population have changed in that period. The analysis is based on the hypothesis that the returned migrant population is vulnerable at work and that, as the years go by, conditions continue to be difficult to guarantee that these people develop and achieve economic and social stability in their country of origin. The main source of information for the analysis is the 2000, 2010 and 2020 census microdata from the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI).</p> Yuliet Bedoya Rangel ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2022-08-11 2022-08-11 16 e202204 e202204 10.31406/relap2022.v16.e202204 Classification proposal to evaluate the quality of census data of centenaries <p>The aim of this study was to propose a classification that allows evaluating the quality of the census data of centenaries elderly people, based on certain indicators for regional population groups in the world. This was an ecological study, consisting of secondary data from individuals aged 100 years or older, residing in 85 countries. Three indicators referring to the centenaries were constructed. The multivariate classification technique “cluster analysis” was applied to select groups of countries with similar characteristics and formulate ranges of values for each indicator. Finally, five scores were designated that determined the final classification. The results indicate that for the good quality of census data, the socioeconomic development factor is intrinsically related. Therefore, the use of demographic tools seems adequate to evaluating health information systems and this classification may favor the understanding of the true panorama in the distribution of long-lived elderly of the world.</p> Juliana Barbosa Medeiros Neir Antunes Paes ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2022-07-30 2022-07-30 16 e202207 e202207 10.31406/relap2022.v16.e202207 Health trajectories in Argentina: compression or expansion of morbidity? <p>The objective of this paper is to estimate the healthy life expectancy (HLE) and life expectancy with disability/disease (LEWD), according to a group of indicators (disabilities of daily living, chronic diseases and self-perceived health) in Argentina for the period 2005 to 2018. We used the method of Sullivan (1971) to calculate the HLE and PHLE. The sources used were deaths from the Direction of Statistics and Health Information (DEIS), population projections from INDEC and the National Surveys of Risk Factors 2005 to 2018. The results differ according to the chosen health indicator: the evolution of LEWD with chronic diseases in both men and women and with negative self-perception of health in men show that a process of expansion of morbidity would be evidenced. On the other hand, trajectories of LEWD with disability (both sexes) and negative self-perception of health in women would indicate a process of compression of morbidity.</p> Laura Débora Acosta Laura Malena Monteverde Octavio Nicolás Bramajo ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2022-07-30 2022-07-30 16 e202205 e202205 10.31406/relap2022.v16.e202205
