Abstract

Este articulo analiza el impacto de la competencia de mercado sobre los retornos a la escolaridad en Mexico, un pais que se encuentra rezagado en indicadores de competencia y con un mercado laboral complejo. Utilizando microdatos de las encuestas de empleo, primero separamos el premio por nivel educativo en diferentes industrias, despues las pegamos en un panel para relacionarlos con datos de competencia de mercado a nivel industria. Los resultados muestran que podria existir un efecto positivo de una mayor competencia sobre el premio salarial de trabajadores mas calificados, mientras que no hay evidencia para los niveles bajos.
