Estimando la efectividad en el control de la violencia y el desarrollo socio-económico en Colombia

  • Alexander Cotte Poveda

    ()

Este trabajo desarrolla un indicador para evaluar el nivel de efectividad del control de la violencia utilizando el método de análisis DEA. El índice evalúa el grado de efectividad del control de la violencia usando los departamentos de Colombia en el periodo 1993 - 2007. Comparando los resultados a través de los departamentos, se encontró que la gran mayoría mejoraron sus índices de efectividad. En un segundo paso, el análisis con datos de panel identificó que los departamentos con un mayor PIB, mejores niveles de educación y empleo tienen una mayor efectividad en el control de la violencia, mientras que departamentos con mayor violencia política, desempleo, necesidades básicas insatisfechas, población desplazada y hectáreas de coca cultivada presentan menor efectividad en el control de la violencia.
