Abstract

Este documento estudia el efecto de choques externos sobre el ingreso de los hogares desde una perspectiva regional. Las medidas de choques externos ponderan el crecimiento económico de los países receptores por los flujos de migraciones de cada región. Los efectos se estiman con modelos de diferencias en diferencias en una muestra de encuestas de hogares que va de 2007 a 2015. Los resultados muestran que el buen desempeño económico en los países receptores se traduce en mayores ingresos en las regiones de alta migración, lo que se explica en gran medida por el aumento en las remesas. Las mayores ganancias se registran en los ingresos laborales de las familias no-receptoras de remesas, lo cual indica que las remesas generan importantes externalidades positivas. En otras medidas de calidad de vida, como afiliación en salud, asistencia escolar y trabajo infantil, los efectos estimados tienden a ser más pequeños y a variar por países.
