Abstract

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 ello se emplea el enfoque de valoración de la vida, teniendo en cuenta la distribución heterogénea de los homicidios en los departamentos, los distintos grupos de edad y el sexo de la población. 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.
