Abstract: This document outlines a series of works developed over several decades - from the original and independent works of Blinder (1973) and Oaxaca (1973) - with the aim of facilitating the comprehension of the technique for wage decomposition and its methodological improvements and applications over time. Similarly, the analyzed applications serve as a guide for the development of work related to the estimation of wage gaps between groups of individuals and their causes.

Â De igual manera, las aplicaciones analizadas sirven de guía para el desarrollo de trabajos relacionados con la estimación de brechas salariales entre grupos de individuos y sus causas.
