Este trabajo tuvo como objetivo: i) el estudio de la evolución del diferencial de salarios entre el sector público y privado y, ii) analizar el impacto en la distribución del ingreso de dicha evolución. Las principales conclusiones del trabajo son: -El salario promedio por hora es mayor en el sector público que en el privado. -El salario base es sustancialmente mayor en el sector público que en el privado, no obstante los retornos al capital humano son mayores en el sector privado. Se observa una variación importante de las diferencias en el salario base a partir de 1996. -La descomposición de las diferencias salariales entre públicos y privados muestran una ventaja total para los públicos a partir de 1996. -La desigualdad salarial es siempre mayor en el sector privado que en el sector público. En el período considerado se encuentra un cambio importante en cuanto a la contribución de cada sector a la desigualdad total. Aumenta de manera notoria la explicación de la desigualdad total por parte de los salarios públicos.
