Abstract

En este trabajo se estima el sesgo total del Índice de Precios al Consumidor en Colombia con base en la metodología propuesta por Hamilton (2001). El ejercicio se fundamenta en la estimación de una ecuación de demanda por alimentos para el período 1984/85 a 1994/95 con la información de la Encuesta de Ingresos y Gastos de esos años. Se llega a la conclusión de que el sesgo total de este índice osciló entre un 1.63 y un 1.69 puntos porcentuales promedio por año en este período.
