Abstract

Este estudio provee evidencia microeconómica sobre la existencia y el grado de rigidez de los salarios nominales a la baja en Colombia, utilizando información a nivel de firma para el periodo 1999-2006. La rigidez se determina a través de varias técnicas estadísticas utilizadas en la literatura reciente, como el análisis de los histogramas de la distribución de los incrementos en los salarios, el estadístico LSW, y la prueba de Kahn. Adicionalmente, a partir de un ejercicio econométrico que identifica los factores que afectan la probabilidad de que los incrementos salariales sean mayores que la inflación observada, se encuentra que en época de auge económico dicha probabilidad aumenta.
