The Effect of Unemployment on Labor Earnings Inequality: Argentina in the Nineties
M. Gonzalvez and
Working Papers from Princeton, Woodrow Wilson School - Development Studies
In this paper we develop a methodology that allows us to quantify the effect of changes in unemployment rates on labor income inequality. We estimate individual earnings functions for employed people conditional on a working status polychotomous model and we establish a formal procedure to assign wages to unemployed workers. We simulate the probability distribution of unemployed persons of particular year on a base year.
