Abstract

Utilizando la información de los decretos gubernamentales sobre plantas de personal y remuneraciones (salarios básicos y otros conceptos de la remuneración, como lo son los pagos por gastos de representación, la prima de dirección, el subsidio de alimentación, entre otros), se presenta una estimación del verdadero salario de los servidores públicos. Se hizo seguimiento a las plantas de cerca de 150 entidades por año entre 1978 y 2005. De acuerdo con la información obtenida, la remuneración media en el sector público fue de $1.426.244 en 2005, a precios de dicho año. Su trayectoria está asociada a la remuneración media de los niveles administrativo, operativo y asistencial, los cuales concentran el mayor número de plazas.
