Abstract

El objetivo de la presente investigación es estudiar la movilidad social en Colombia a nivel regional. Colombia tiene una de los más altos índices de concentración del ingreso en el mundo, y amplias disparidades económicas a nivel regional, que han sido persistentes a través del tiempo. En este trabajo se estudia uno de los factores determinantes de dicha persistencia: baja movilidad social a través de las generaciones. Los resultados confirman los bajos niveles de movilidad intergeneracional en la educación, aunque se reportan mejorías. Además se encuentra una fuerte asociación entre el ingreso de una región y el grado de movilidad social. También hay una correlación negativa y significativa entre el grado de desigualdad en los ingresos de una región y el grado de movilidad social. Esta investigación representa un primer esfuerzo por relacionar las condiciones de movilidad social con las de desigualdad, avanzando en el estudio de la transmisión intergeneracional de las desigualdades en Colombia.******ABSTRACT: This paper studies social mobility in Colombia at a regional level for 2003 and 2010. Colombia has one of the highest levels of income concentration in the world. It also has significant regional economic disparities. Both the high level of regional economic disparities and the income concentration have been highly persistent. In this paper we study one of the determinants of that persistence: low levels of social mobility across the generations. The results of this paper confirm those low levels of intergenerational mobility in education. However, comparing the years 2003 with 2010 we notice that there have been improvements in this regard. The results also reveal a strong association between the level of income of a region and the degree of social mobility it presents. There is also a negative and significant correlation between the degree of income inequality of a region and the extent of social mobility. This research represents a first attempt to study the relation between conditions of social mobility with inequalities, to advance in the study of the intergenerational transmission of inequality in Colombia.
