Un marco metodológico para el trabajo empírico en Economía: el caso de las variables
AbstractThis article reviews the concept of variables and units of analysis (subjects) in empirical research in economics. It incorporates ideas from other quantitative areas, and are arranged in a conceptual framework. We present a taxonomy for the variables and units and discuss methodological issues that arise from the framework. We suggest that the reflection on the nature of the variables and subjects from the beginning of the research is a task which should be part of the formulation of theories, hypothesis or ideas involved in the empirical economic research. We use non technical language to call the attention from a wider audience.
