La distribution des salaires en Suisse : quelques observations sur la récession des années 90

  • Enrico BOLZANI
  • Ramses H. ABUL NAGA

Nous amenons certains compléments aux travaux de Küng Gugler et Blank (2000) portant sur l'évolution de l'inégalité des salaires entre 1992 et 1997. Notamment, nous incluons dans nos données les travailleurs indépendants. Nous apportons également une dimension inférentielle à la comparaison des courbes de Lorenz. Finalement, nous examinons les changements intervenus dans la distribution des salaires dans l'optique du critère de Lorenz généralisé vu l'importante détérioration des rémunérations observée durant cette période. Nos résultats révèlent certaines différences par rapport aux travaux de Küng Gugler et Blank. Notamment, nous observons de 1992 à 1997 un déplacement de la courbe de Lorenz vers le haut. De plus, ce changement s'avère statistiquement significatif. En revanche, il émerge de la comparaison de courbes de Lorenz généralisées que cette diminution des inégalités n'a pas été suffisante, dans une perspective de bien-être social, pour compenser la détérioration intervenue dans le niveau moyen des salaires.
