“Dinámica salarial y ocupacional: análisis de panel para Argentina 1998-2002”.

This paper jointly studies occupational and wage stability for Argentina during the period 1998-2002. Using panels constructed from the EPH, we analyze how workers’ characteristics affect wage volatility and the probability of losing or obtaining employment. The evidence found indicates that individuals with lower wages face the most variation in their earnings and high rotation between employment and unemployment. During the deep macroeconomic crisis, occupational instability doubled and earnings mobility remained stable.
