¿Incide la forma de tenencia de la vivienda habitual sobre la situación de empleo en España?/Does the Housing Tenure Choice Affect the Employment Situation in Spain?
El objetivo de este trabajo es aportar mayor evidencia empírica sobre la posible existencia en España de relaciones causales entre el régimen de tenencia de la vivienda habitual (propiedad/alquiler) y la situación en el empleo del cabeza de familia (empleado/desempleado), deslindando a su vez este efecto del generado por otros covariantes e inobservables que puedan afectar, así como del efecto causal inverso que pueda existir. Para ello, basándonos en los microdatos anuales de la Encuesta de Condiciones de Vida para el año 2010 y bajo el enfoque de la literatura de efectos de un tratamiento, estimamos modelos switching probit que relacionan ambas variables a nivel microeconó¬mico. Los resultados obtenidos nos permiten afirmar que poseer la vivienda habitual en propiedad, tanto si se tiene con hipoteca o sin ella, aumenta la probabilidad de empleo en torno a un 10%. The objective of this study is to provide more empirical evidence on the possible existence in Spain of causal rela¬tionships between housing tenure choice (ownership/rental) and the employment status of household head (em¬ployed/unemployed), separating this effect from the one generated by other covariates and unobservables which might affect, as well as from the reverse causal effect that might exist. With this aim, based on micro data from the Survey of Living Conditions for 2010 and the approach of the literature of treatment effects, we estimate switching probit models that relate these variables at the microeconomic level. The results obtained allow us to assert that owning the main residence, whether it is mortgaged or not, increases the probability of employment around 10%.
