Abstract

Este artículo analiza la dinámica de la pobreza y movilidad relativa en Chile. Utilizando datos de panel extraídos de la encuesta de Caracterización Socioeconómica Nacional (CASEN) de los años 1996 y 2001, se examina los movimientos en el ingreso per capita y la probabilidad de entrada y salida de la pobreza. Se caracteriza de esta forma a los grupos vulnerables y se realizan aproximaciones a los determinantes de estos movimientos. Los resultados muestran que existe una alta movilidad posicional en los primeros nueve deciles de la distribución de ingresos, lo que se traduce en que una gran parte de la población es vulnerable de caer en la pobreza. En otras palabras, a pesar del sostenido crecimiento y reducción en pobreza, Chile sigue siendo un país con alta vulnerabilidad para gran parte de su población. La evidencia también muestra que los hogares correspondientes al 40% más pobre no cuentan con las herramientas para asimilar un problema de salud que afecte al jefe de hogar, disminuyendo la probabilidad de salir de la pobreza y la cantidad de su ingreso esperado. Este resultado no se observa para hogares más ricos. Por último, la evidencia indica a la educación técnica como una importante herramienta para superar la pobreza.
