El componente local de la informalidad laboral para las diez principales áreas metropolitanas de Colombia, 1988-2000

  • García Cruz Gustavo Adolfo


Este documento examina la relación entre la informalidad laboral urbana y los procesos de desarrollo industrial de las regiones, empleando la información de la Encuesta Nacional de Hogares del DANE para las diez principales áreas metropolitanas de Colombia en los años pares del período 1988-2000, excepto 1990. Con esta información se estima un modelo de efectos fijos de datos de panel" donde se relaciona la tasa de informalidad y la participación porcentual del sector industrial dentro del PIB departamental. Los resultados obtenidos muestran una relación inversa entre la informalidad laboral y el grado de desarrollo industrial de las ciudades. De igual forma, se ha encontrado que la informalidad en las áreas metropolitanas tiene un componente local que es producto de otro tipo de factores diferentes al desarrollo industrial. Esta dimensión local de la informalidad es reflejo de las características económicas y sociales propias de cada región, siendo la estructura productiva y la cercanía con otros centros urbanos determinantes adicionales al problema de la informalidad laboral."
