Ingresos y capital humano: El caso de Buenos Aires a mediados del siglo XIX

Carlos Newland and Maria Jesus San Segundo

Revista de Historia Económica / Journal of Iberian and Latin American Economic History, 1992, vol. 10, issue 3, 451-466

Abstract: In this paper a sample which gives information on males from Buenos Aires in 1852 is used to estimate earnings equations. Some of these empirical results deserve special attention. No statistical correlation is found between salaries and literacy, but there is a significant correlation between capital owners and literacy. These results are interpreted using human capital theory. Then, they are compared with similar studies for other countries in the same period.
