¿Existe discriminación étnica racial en Cali? Un análisis a partir de regresión cuantílica


  • Juan Byron Correa Fonnegra



El presente artículo analiza el problema de discriminación laboral para el grupo de afrodescendientes en el área metropolitana de Cali. La descomposición de las brechas salariales en los diferentes puntos de la distribución del salario (metodología de Melly) permite identificar los segmentos de población en los cuales los diferenciales son significativos. Los resultados sugieren la existencia de diferencias salariales tanto por condición étnica racial como de género, pero entre los grupos étnicos raciales se identifican comportamientos discriminatorios en el 50 por ciento superior de la distribución en contra de los afrodescendientes
