Abstract

The aim of this paper is to make imputation of earnings in observations with missing values in the Encuesta Nacional de Ocupaciones y Empleo (ENOE), and also to analyze a possible bias in human capital estimations from ignoring such missings. We present imputations by two methods, and also a correction for estimations by reweighting observations with reported earnings. The results show differences in human capital estimations on wages and factors related to labor poverty when missing values of earnings are ignored. Differences are acute when measuring labor poverty.
