Changes in Wage Structure in Mexico Going Beyond the Mean : An Analysis of Differences in Distribution, 1987-2008
Tello de la Torre, Claudia; Ramos Lobo, Raúl; Artís Ortuño, Manuel
This paper conducts an empirical analysis of the relationship between wage inequality, employment structure, and returns to education in urban areas of Mexico during the past two decades (1987-2008). Applying Melly’s (2005) quantile regression based decomposition, we find that changes in wage inequality have been driven mainly by variations in educational wage premia. Additionally, we find that changes in employment structure, including occupation and firm size, have played a vital role.
