Abstract

A pesar de su importancia y al igual que otras variables, la tasa de desempleo usualmente ha sido analizada desde una perspectiva nacional, desconociendo caracter�sticas de cada ciudad o regi�n. No obstante las claras diferencias regionales en el entorno colombiano, muy pocos trabajos han abordado el problema partiendo de esas diferencias. En este trabajo se utilizan las tasas de desempleo de siete ciudades para analizar similitudes y diferencias. A partir de la construcci�n de un �ndice de dispersi�n de las series se aprecia un movimiento proc�clico de las diferencias, es decir, aumentos en las diferencias al disminuir el desempleo. Del mismo modo, al aumentar el desempleo las diferencias tienden a disminuir. Adicionalmente, mediante el an�lisis de cointegraci�n de Johansen se logra identificar relaciones de largo plazo entre las series consideradas, al igual que mecanismos de ajuste de las diferencias en el corto plazo. A partir de este an�lisis se encuentra evidencia de una explicaci�n de equilibrio de largo plazo, al igual que efectos de desequilibrios en el corto plazo.
