Prevenir y calcular una estimacion de los costos de la violencia homicida en Colombia

  • Adriana Villamarin Garcia


Registered author(s):

    Este trabajo estima los costos en términos de pérdida de bienestar asociados con el aumento de la mortalidad generado por la violencia homicida en Colombia en el período 1990-2005. Para ellos se emplea el enfoque de valoración de la vida, teniendo en cuenta la distribución heterogénea de los homicidios. Se encuentra que la pérdida de bienestar equivale a 7,3% del PIB real de 2005 y afecta de manera desproporcionada a la población masculina joven de los departamentos de Antioquia, Bogotá y Valle del Cauca.
