Trampas de Pobreza en Argentina: Evidencia Empírica a Partir de un Pseudo Panel

Registered author(s):

    The aim of this paper is to analyze the existence of poverty traps in Argentina. In order to do it so, the income dynamic was estimated by using a pseudo panel built from the Encuesta Permanente de Hogares. This methodology allows to overcome econometric challenges involved in testing for the presence of poverty traps: lack of long duration panels, attrition, and measurement error in income. The results do find no evidence for the existence of poverty traps due to nonlinearities in income dynamics. El objetivo del presente trabajo es analizar la existencia de trampas de pobreza en Argentina. Para ello se estima la dinámica de ingresos a partir de un pseudo panel construido con información brindada por la Encuesta Permanente de Hogares. Esta metodología permite superar los problemas econométricos que enfrenta la estimación de trampas de pobreza: carencia de un panel para un periodo largo de tiempo, attrition y la presencia de errores no clásicos de medición en los ingresos. Los resultados encontrados descartan la existencia de trampas de pobreza debido a no linealidades en la dinámica de ingresos.
