Abstract

En este documento se estudia la dimensión espacial de la informalidad laboral a nivel intra-urbano. Utilizando como caso de estudio la ciudad de Medellín (Colombia), se hace un análisis de la dimensión espacial de la informalidad laboral y a partir de modelos de regresión con dependencia espacial se estudian los principales factores que determinan éste fenómeno. Los resultados muestran que existen marcados patrones espaciales de la informalidad laboral a nivel intra-urbano en Medellín, en donde la ciudad se encuentra segmentada socio-espacialmente entre norte y sur en términos de la calidad del empleo, educación, oportunidades de empleo y condiciones de la vivienda. También se encuentra que un mayor porcentaje de mujeres y mayor porcentaje de viviendas precarias generan incrementos en los niveles de informalidad laboral. Por su parte, las variables asociadas a educación y empleo moderno tienen un efecto negativo sobre éste fenómeno.
