En este artículo se describe cómo se determina la tasa de desempleo de la economía de Paraguay en el periodo 1985-2007. En el modelo teórico se supone la existencia de rigideces salariales que generan desempleo de tipo involuntario, los salarios son el resultado de un proceso de negociación entre trabajadores y dueños del capital y el poder de negociación salarial de los trabajadores depende negativamente del desempleo. Al combinar las ecuaciones de demanda de trabajo, de reacción salarial y la identidad de la tasa de desempleo, se puede obtener una ecuación de forma semireducida para determinar el desempleo, el cual depende del crecimiento del stock de capital y de la oferta de trabajo. El enfoque teórico es validado ampliamente en el análisis empírico, obteniéndose signos de acuerdo a lo esperado y aceptándose las restricciones teóricas sobre los coeficientes. El cumplimiento de estas restricciones está condicionado al uso de población en edad de trabajar como sustituto de la fuerza de trabajo.
