Este trabajo tiene como objetivo analizar el comportamiento de la ocupación en el mercado del trabajo en Chile a nivel regional, determinando las diferencias y similitudes entre regiones, y de las regiones con el agregado de empleo a nivel nacional. Para la realización de dicho trabajo se han utilizado las tasas mensuales de ocupación regionales y a nivel país para el periodo 1986-2010, y utilizado métodos de Clusterización de series temporales para identificar conjuntos de regiones con comportamientos similares. Los resultados muestran la existencia de diferentes regímenes en los mercados laborales de las regiones y el relevante rol de algunas regiones en el comportamiento del agregado nacional. The objective of this work is to analyze the employment behavior in the labor market in Chile at the regional level, determining the differences and similarities between regions, and of the regions with the aggregate employment at the national level. For this work, we studied the monthly regional employment rates during the 1986-2010 period for Chile by applying time series clustering methods to identify regions with similar dynamics. Afterward, we use that information to build a model that explains the contributions from the regional markets to the national aggregate. Results show the existence of regimes on the local labor markets and the relevance of the Metropolitan Region on the country-level behavior.
