Abstract

El objetivo central de esta investigación es examinar los vínculos existentes entre la tendencia de activos y la condición de pobreza en el caso de la economía chilena. El primer capítulo entrega antecedentes de estudios previos sobre la pobreza en Chile y provee una visión actualizada de las características y evolución de la pobreza en la última década, incluyendo una serie inédita de largo plazo para la variable en el caso de Santiago. El segundo capítulo ofrece un análisis de la relación entre capital humano y la pobreza durante los años 1987 y 1996. Esta se basa en una cuidadosa estimación del activo a nivel de los hogares a partir de la valoración de la dotación disponible en cada individuo en edad de trabajar y corregida por la decisión de participación laboral. También se muestra evidencia sobre transmisión intergeneracional del activo sobre la base del estudio de los logros educativos de las escuelas a las cuales asisten los niños en edad escolar.
