Abstract

In this article, we introduce group effects to explain the determinants of wages. We present three models: two models are error component models, specifically a statistical version of the Mincerian model and a microeconomic version of the Lucas (1988) model, and a model of the diffusion of knowledge developed by Lévy-Garboua (1996). The results obtained with data on a Canadian company and firms data from the Algiers region show that the error component models improve the classical Mincerian model in explaining the determinants of wages. The estimation of the Lévy-Garboua model indicates that the diffusion of knowledge plays a positive role and validates the individual effects of the Mincer model except for the seniority variable. Dans cet article nous ajoutons des effets de groupe pour améliorer le modèle classique de salaire proposé par Mincer. Nous présentons trois modèles, deux à erreurs composées soit une version statistique du modèle mincerien et une version micro-économique du modèle de Lucas (1988) et un modèle de diffusion du savoir développé par Lévy-Garboua (1994). Les résultats de nos estimations avec des données sur une compagnie canadienne et sur les entreprises de l’industrie de la région d’Alger montrent que les deux modèles à erreurs composées améliorent le pouvoir explicatif du modèle classique de Mincer. L’estimation du modèle de Lévy-Garboua montre que la diffusion du savoir serait toujours positive et valide l’estimation des effets individuels du modèle de Mincer à l’exception des rendements de l’ancienneté.
