Una Aproximación de la Brecha Salarial entre Entidades Públicas en el Ecuador
[An Approximation of the Wage Gap between Public Entities in Ecuador]


  • Carrillo, Paul A.

This research shows the pay gap between public entities in Ecuador. We use the information of Annex Relation Unit of the Internal Revenue Service and the Civil Registry for 2008 and 2009. The study makes a Mincerian model and an analysis by quintiles to find and compare the wage gap between state institutions. In the results, we find that the Attorney General, Comptroller and others have higher salaries than the Ministries (reference institutions).
