    El modelo de crecimiento neocl�sico predice convergencia en el sentido de que las regiones pobres crecer�n m�s r�pido que las ricas, debido a los rendimientos decrecientes del capital. El presente trabajo analiza esta relaci�n entre los departamentos colombianos, utilizando variables alternativas al ingreso como son los indicadores sociales (esperanza de vida al nacer y tasa de analfabetismo) para el per�odo comprendido entre 1985 y 2000. Al utilizar la metodolog�a tradicional propuesta por Barro y Sala-i-Martin (1990, 1992), adem�s de estimaciones no param�tricas de la densidad, se concluye que existe convergencia entre la esperanza de vida al nacer de los departamentos colombianos, mientras que �sta no existe para la tasa de analfabetismo.
