Los intentos de cuantificación del valor estadístico de la vida (VEV) a través de los intercambios entre riesgo y salario se han desarrollado mayoritariamente a partir del Modelo de Salarios Hedónicos. Bajo este esquema conceptual, el presente trabajo realiza una estimación del VEV a partir de una amplia base de datos del mercado de trabajo español y de la construcción de índices de riesgo laboral que incorporan simultáneamente la ocupación y la rama de actividad para el período 1997-2000. Los principales resultados de la aplicación constatan una relación positiva entre el riesgo de accidentalidad y el salario percibido y sitúan el VEV en España en el rango de 2 a 2,7 millones de euros, a precios del 2000.
