Rendimientos privados de las inversiones en educación superior a partir de ecuaciones de ingresos

  • Manuel Salas Velasco

    ()

    (Universidad de Granana y Columbia University)

A pesar de su amplio uso en los trabajos aplicados sobre rendimientos de la educación, este artículo demuestra que la «función minceriana estándar» no arroja una medida exacta del valor económico de la Educación Superior si ésta es una variable endógena. El problema de la endogeneidad de la educación se ha corregido a través de la técnica de variables instrumentales. Nosotros obtenemos una rentabilidad del 13,6 por 100 para los estudios universitarios; alternativamente, observamos que los licenciados ganan un 57 por 100 más que los diplomados. No obstante, y tras usar el método bietápico de Heckman, no se detecta sesgo de selección muestral.
