Estudio de las tendencias cuantitativas y cualitativas de la oferta laboral
AbstractThis article analyzes changes in male and female participation in the Uruguayan labor market during 1991 to 2009. We estimate labor market participation probability, the uncompensated wage elasticity of market work hours and determinants changes and its inciedence through time, both for participation decisions and working hours. The results show a diminishing in the incidence of factors wich inhibits women participation. On the other hand, they allow verifying the higher sensitivity of female labor supply to changes in wages, as well as the differences in significance and incidence of sociodemographic variables among women and men. These differences are relevant for designing labor policies taking into account gender differences.
