Abstract

Este análisis emplea la descomposición de Blinder-Oaxaca en el contexto de regresión por cuantiles. Los resultados de la aplicación de la metodología de BO sugieren que las brechas salariales no están explicadas por los atributos observables de los individuos. Dichas brechas son en su mayoría explicadas por el efecto de las diferencias en la remuneración a los atributos tales como la educación, y a elementos no observados. Por ciudades el estudio muestra patrones que revelan una mayor brecha salarial en las ciudades periféricas en contraposición a las de Bogotá, Cali, Medellín, Manizales y Pereira.
