Abstract

Presentamos la evolución de una decena de variables a lo largo del ciclo económico para distintas ciudades y grupos demográficos. Las fechas utilizadas para identificar las fases de recesión fueron tomadas de Alfonso et al. (2013). Se encuentra que la participación laboral aumenta en las contracciones mientras que la tasa de ocupación cae. La suma de estos dos hechos permite predecir sin ambigüedades que en las recesiones el desempleo aumenta. En particular, los cesantes, más que los aspirantes, siempre aumentan en los momentos de crisis; es decir, los despidos y la reinserción al mercado parecen ser los eventos más regulares durante los períodos de crisis. Los salarios y las horas trabajadas caen en las recesiones mientras que el subempleo por horas aumenta. La relación de asalariados a población en edad de trabajar se constituye en una variable clave para el estudio de las fases del ciclo ya que siempre se contrae durante las recesiones.
