Abstract

El objetivo de este trabajo consiste en analizar las diferencias en el reporte de los accidentes conocidos dentro de la literatura como de difícil diagnóstico entre la población nacional e inmigrante. El fin de utilizar este tipo de accidentes es que en ellos puede parecer más verosímil que se produzcan episodios de absentismo laboral encubierto. Así se podría obtener una medida del esfuerzo relativo ejercido por los trabajadores inmigrantes en relación con los nacionales. Desde un punto de vista metodológico se realiza una estimación probit para obtener las principales conclusiones. Partiendo de esta estimación se descompone en dos partes la diferencia observada en la incidencia de este tipo de accidentes, una debida a las distintas características de cada grupo y otra provocada por la diferente repercusión de esas características. The objective of this article is to investigate the differences in the report of hard-to-diagnose injuries between Spanish and immigrant workers. We use this kind of accidents because is more common to find hidden labour absenteeism episodes in them. So it could be obtained a measure of the relative effort exercised by the immigrant workers in comparison with the national ones. From a methodological point of view we perform a probit estimation to obtain the main conclusions. Starting from these results we decompose the observed difference in the incidence of this type of accidents in two parts, one part justified by the characteristics of each group, and other part which is due to the different yield of those characteristics.
