“Desigualdad salarial en el Gran Buenos Aires: una aplicación de regresión por cuantiles en microdescomposiciones”.

The aim of this paper is to analyze the changes in the wage inequality of the Greater Buenos Aires during 1995-2003. In order to do so I apply the Juhn, Murphy and Pearse (1993) microdecomposition methodology. However, I estimate the parameters through a quantile regression technique proposed by Machado and Mata (2005) and extended by Autor, Katz and Kearney (2005). At the same time, I calculate the confidence intervals for the micro-decomposition estimations with a bootstrap excercise.
