    Abstract

    En el presente estudio se analiza el comportamiento de la demanda laboral de profesionales en Cali en el año 2009, utilizando la información de una encuesta desarrollada por la Pontificia Universidad Javeriana Cali y la Universidad Autónoma de Occidente, en donde se les preguntó a los jefes de recursos humanos de 312 empresas del área metropolitana de Cali, por la demanda de profesionales de ciencias económicas y administrativas e Ingeniería de las diferentes universidades de la ciudad de Cali. La mayoría de los estudios coinciden en que los estudios de demanda laboral son el “patito feo” de las investigaciones en economía laboral, debido a la poca información existente, o al auge de las encuestas de hogares y censos que permiten el desarrollo de análisis por el lado de la oferta laboral. Por esta razón el estudio se realiza con información primaria, con el objetivo de tener información de la fuente generadora de empleo y de esta forma no quedarse solo en la estimación de las tres elasticidades que explican el comportamiento de la demanda frente a variables que la determinan: su precio (elasticidad empleo-salario), el precio de otros factores (elasticidad cruzada) y el nivel de producción (elasticidad empleo producto).
