Efectos de los ingresos no reportados en el nivel y tendencia de la pobreza laboral en México

Raymundo Campos-Vazquez

Ensayos Revista de Economia, 2013, vol. XXXII, issue 2, 23-54

Abstract: The proportion of wage workers with missing labor income has recently increased in Mexico. In this article, I correct the missing labor income through imputation methods. The official measurement of labor poverty indicates an increase from 42% to 53% in the 2005-2012 period, but poverty measured with imputed income increases only from 36% to 40%, a much lower increase than the one we observe. The results imply that policy makers should include in their statistics individuals with missing income and report statistics with and without correcting for missing income.
