Abstract

La evidencia muestra que la oferta y el precio del trabajo calificado relativo al trabajo no calificado han cambiado significativamente en los últimos decenios en Colombia. Los resultados sugieren que Colombia ha experimentado un cambio tecnológico sesgado hacia trabajadores universitarios. Usando regresión por cuantiles, se encontró convergencia en los salarios de los grupos educativos más bajos y disminución en la dispersión de salarios de esos grupos desde mediados de los 90s. Así mismo, el diferencial de salarios entre los trabajadores más y menos educados se ha incrementado a partir de la segunda mitad de los 90s.
