Estimation of Regional Wage Series in Chile

  • Jorge Dresdner


Monthly wage series with quarterly periodicity between December 1994 and
December 2004 for thirteen regions in Chile are presented in this paper. These
series are based on the information recollected by the Superintendencia de Fondos
de Pensiones (Pensions Fund Superintendence), but are corrected for truncation
and censoring bias. The comparative analysis of corrected and non-corrected
series indicates that the series show a statistically diferentiated behavior. The
non-corrected wage series are not good predictors of the corrected series.
Thus, to develop regional wage analysis, based on this information source, it is
preferable to use the corrected series presented in this paper.
