Abstract

This paper exploits the structural change in the number of rural seizures to measure the impact of strengthening the security policy between 2002 and 2006 on the rural labor market in Colombia. The new policy produced dissimilar effects across gender, age-groups, and types of occupation. In general, there was a socioeconomic loss in terms of reductions in the adults‟ labor supply and income, while for youths and children there was a differentiated effect by gender in the labor participation. No significant connections were found with school enrollment. RESUMEN: Haciendo uso del cambio estructural en el número de incautaciones, este trabajo mide el impacto del fortalecimiento de la política de seguridad entre 2002 y 2006 sobre el mercado laboral rural en Colombia. La nueva política produjo efectos diferenciales según el género, la edad y los tipos de ocupación de los individuos. Se evidencia una pérdida socioeconómica en términos de reducciones simultáneas de la oferta laboral y los ingresos de los adultos, mientras que para los jóvenes y los niños se presentó un efecto diferenciado, por género, en la participación laboral. No se encontraron efectos significativos en la matrícula escolar.
