Modelando la probabilidad de inserción laboral en un egresado en Colombia


  • Andrés Eduardo Rangel


Existen numerosos estudios en el medio académico nacional sobre la probabilidad de estar desempleado en función de características microeconómicas del individuo. No obstante, son pocos los estudios sobre la probabilidad de empleabilidad de los egresados en función del tipo universidad, entre otras variables. Es un hecho comúnmente aceptado por los economistas el que la educación, en particular la superior, produce una externalidad positiva en la sociedad, razón por la cual el gobierno interviene ante este fallo de mercado, con una provisión de educación superior a través de las universidades públicas. Ahora bien, ¿las universidades públicas permiten la movilidad social? Para aproximarse a la respuesta, se realiza un análisis de inserción laboral por el tipo de financiación de la universidad. ********* There are numerous studies in national academic circles on the probability of being unemployed, in terms of micro-economic characteristics of the individual. However, there are few studies on the likelihood of employability of college graduates depending on the type of college and other variables. It is a fact commonly accepted by economists that education, especially higher education, produces a positive externality on society, reason why the government intervenes with this market failure with a provision of higher education through public universities. However, do public universities allow social mobility? To approach the response, a labor insertion analysis is done according to the type of funding of the University.
