Desigualdad Salarial en el Gran Buenos Aires: Una Aplicación de Regresión por Cuantiles en Microdescomposiciones

CEDLAS, Working Papers from CEDLAS, Universidad Nacional de La Plata

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to analyze the changes in the wage inequality of the Greater Buenos Aires during 1995-2003. In order to do so I apply the Juhn, Murphy and Pierce (1993) microdecomposition methodology. Although, I estimate the parameters through a quantile regression technique proposed by Machado and Mata (2005) and extended by Autor, Katz and Kearney (2005). At the same time, I calculate the confidence intervals for the microdecomposition estimations with a bootstrap exercise.
