Cambios en los retornos de la educación en Bogotá entre 1997 y 2003

  • Forero, Nohora


  • Gamboa, Luis Fernando


Resumen: Este artículo estima la tasa de retorno de la educación de la población asalariada en Bogotá para 1997 y 2003 teniendo como referencia la teoría del capital humano. Para la estimación se corrige el sesgo de selección por medio de la metodología de Heckman (1979). A diferencia de estudios anteriores, que usan la Encuesta Nacional de Hogares, en éste se utiliza la información disponible en la Encuesta de Calidad de Vida que también es representativa para Bogotá. Se encuentra que los retornos de la educación y de la experiencia potencial, así como la elasticidad horas-ingreso laboral y el ingreso laboral se reducen en el periodo posterior a la recesión económica
