Brechas de ingresos laborales entre asalariados y autoempleados en el Perú


  • José Rodríguez

    () (Departamento de Economía - Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú)


El objetivo principal del trabajo es someter a prueba la existencia de diferencias de los ingresos entre los trabajadores asalariados y los autoempleados en los mercados laborales del Perú. Para este fin se utiliza la información de las encuestas de hogares de los años 2008 y 2009, y se emplea métodos semi-paramétricos para hacer las comparaciones (propensity score matching y diferencia de las diferencias). Los resultados sugieren la existencia de segmentación entre estos dos tipos de puestos de trabajo (i.e. asalariados y autogenerados) pues los dos métodos empleados muestran diferencias en 22 y 31% con el método de las diferencias en las diferencias y entre 33 y 64% con el propensity score matching.
