A partir de un análisis de características observables, este documento busca determinar la posible existencia de una brecha en los ingresos entre la población raizal y no raizal en San Andrés Isla. Para ello, se utilizan los datos obtenidos de la encuesta SISBEN II del año 2004, elaborada por el Departamento Nacional de Planeación (DNP). La estrategia metodológica consiste en estimar regresiones por cuantiles, con el objeto de observar si existen diferencias en la remuneración a lo largo de la distribución del ingreso. Los resultados sugieren que el ser raizal está asociado de manera negativa con los ingresos de aquellos que se encuentran en la parte baja de la distribución. Esta condición desaparece a medida que aumentan los ingresos, convirtiéndose en positiva en los niveles más altos de la distribución. ABSTRACT: This document examines, bases on the analysis of observable characteristics, if an income gap exists between the raizal population and no raizal population of San Andrés Island. For this purpose, the information of the SISBEN II survey for the year 2004, compelled by the National Planning Department (DNP, Spanish acronym) is used. The methodological strategy uses quantiles regressions to determine the existence of pay gaps, throughout the distribution of income. The results suggest that being raizal is associated has a negative impact on income for the lower quantiles. However, this difference vanishes as income increases, becoming positive at higher levels.
