Esta investigación propone una estrategia empírica de estimación del potencial individual de logro educativo para Colombia (PCE) a través de modelos de ecuaciones estructurales (SEM). El potencial de logro educativo es una variable latente que proviene de la combinación multidimensional de los efectos de vecindad y del background familiar. Un aporte de la investigación radica en la utilización de métodos bayesianos de estimación de las relaciones estructurales sugeridas por la teoría y compara los resultados con los obtenidos a través de técnicas de máxima verosimilitud. Los resultados aportan evidencia de que la calidad de los entornos locales (efectos de vecindad) presentan los efectos más grandes sobre el PCE. Las estimaciones fueron consistentes por los dos métodos utilizados (estimación bayesiana y máxima verosimilitud. M.L.).
