¿Cuánto cuesta vivir en las principales ciudades colombianas? Índice de Costo de Vida Comparativo

Actualmente no se cuenta con una medición de las disparidades regionales en el costo de vida para Colombia. En este trabajo se calcula un índice de costo de vida comparativo. Se trata de un deflactor regional que puede ser utilizado para comparar otras variables asociadas a la demanda, tales como el ingreso laboral. Para expresar las diferencias regionales en el costo de vida se propone la construcción de un indicador que compara el gasto mínimo de cada ciudad con el escenario alternativo, es decir, que este mismo plan sea evaluado en la situación de precios de las demás ciudades. Como resultado de este trabajo se evidencia la existencia de importantes diferencias regionales en el costo de vida de los hogares colombianos; estas son, en promedio, del 26% entre la ciudad de mayor y menor costo de vida comparativo.
