Abstract

Este trabajo muestra los resultados de un estudio del impacto del crecimiento economico sectorial en el desempleo en Mexico para el periodo 1996-2001. este fue realizado con datos desagregados de la Encuesta Nacional de Empleo. El ensayo, que se deriva de trabajos previos relacionados con la ley de Okun, inclu ye una discusion de aspectos teoricos sobre la contribucion de los distintos sectores economicos al crecimiento, asi como la relacion entre la produccion y el empleo en Mexico. La parte central del ensayo se basa en el analisis de datos en forma de panel para estimar la tasa abierta de desempleo; ademas, incluye el estudio del crecimiento y desempleo regional urbano/rural en distintos sectores de diez diferentes regiones en Mexico. Los resultados del analisis al nivel regional muestran que el desempleo en Mexico tiene un efecto negativo y estadisticamente significativo en el crecimiento economico. Ademas, se encontro evidencia que sugiere que la promocion del crecimiento sectorial-regional (urbano/rural) puede ser una forma efectiva para reducir el desempleo.
