En este documento se evalúan los efectos de la implementación del Sistema General de Regalías sobre el desempeño fiscal municipal en 2012, para una muestra de 1.025 municipios, a través del análisis dosis-respuesta. Se encontró que en el 93% de las entidades territoriales de la muestra, donde la participación de las regalías en sus ingresos totales es menor o igual al 20%, el desempeño fiscal, medido por medio de diversos indicadores se deteriora a medida que se incrementa la dependencia de regalías. Por el contrario, si dicha participación es superior al 20%, el desempeño fiscal mejora pero la magnitud de la inversión se deteriora. Teniendo en cuenta que la reforma asignó recursos pero no garantizó su apropiación por parte de los entes territoriales, los resultados pueden explicarse por la baja ejecución las regalías durante el 2012.******ABSTRACT: This paper evaluates the effects of the implementation of the General Royalties System on the fiscal performance at the municipality level in 2012 employing a dose-response analysis, for a sample of 1,025 municipalities. It was found that in the 93% of municipalities, where the proportion of royalties in their total revenues are less or equal to 20%, the fiscal performance measured by several indexes worsens, while the dependency on the royalties increases. On the other hand, if such proportion is higher than 20% the fiscal performance improves but the local investment falls. Given that the reform assigned resources but did not guarantee their appropriation by the municipalities, these results can be explained by the low execution of royalties during 2012.
