Desigualdad en el área rural de Bolivia ¿Cuán importante es la educación?


  • Villegas, Horacio

    (IISEC Universidad Católica Boliviana "San Pablo")


Este documento descompone la desigualdad en la distribución de ingresos en el área rural de Bolivia durante el periodo 1999-2002. La evidencia muestra que la educación contabiliza entre el 6 y el 8 por ciento de la desigualdad del ingreso laboral, mientras que las diferencias de ingresos entre trabajadores del sector agrícola y trabajadores de otros sectores explican entre el 15 y el 20 por ciento de la desigualdad. De esta manera, la educación resulta ser una variable fundamental en la explicación de la desigualdad, aunque no la más importante.
