Abstract

Entre 1984 y 2000 se registraron variaciones importantes en la relación entre salarios de los trabajadores de mayor y menor nivel educativo. Entre 1992 y 1998 se presentó un incremento de esta relación que muy probablemente contribuyó a explicar la reversión de la tendencia previa a la desconcentración del ingreso ocurrida durante los años 90, mientras que lo contrario se observó en los períodos 1984-91 y 1999-2000. Nuestras estimaciones indican que tales variaciones de los salarios fueron causadas por movimientos de la relación entre demanda y oferta laboral, en consonancia con el modelo convencional de determinación de salarios. Además, no se rechaza la hipótesis de ocurrencia de un cambio técnico, al menos en un sentido laxo, intensivo en el uso de trabajadores del mayor nivel educativo durante los años 90 cuyo efecto en la demanda fue tan alto que no logró ser compensado por los aumentos en la oferta.
