Abstract: RESUMENEn este trabajo se realiza una caracterización de las relaciones entre la distribución del ingreso y el crecimiento y nivel del PIB per cápita departamental en los anos 1996, 1998 y 2003. En el análisis se evalúa si los departamentos de la costa norte colombiana replican o no los patrones generales observados en el país, como lo es el hecho de que un alto nivel inicial de desigualdad esté relacionado con un alto crecimiento, y este último con un bajo nivel de desigualdad final. Atendiendo al hecho de que la desigualdad entre departamentos parece atenuarse durante el periodo, pero no así la desigualdad total del ingreso, se realizan dos ejercicios de descomposición de la desigualdad para el país y los departamentos de la costa.ABSTRACTThis document makes a characterization of the relations between the income distribution and the level and growth of the per capital GDP at a departmental (subnational) scale in the years 1996, 1998 and 2003. There´s an assessment for the coast departments as if they repeat the general national standards, like the fact that a higher initial inequality is related to higher growth, but higher inequality is related with a lower level of final inequality, too. After having detected a convergent trend in inequality between departments, but not in the national inequality, an inequality decomposition analysis is done for the whole country as so as coast departments.
