Immigrant wages in the Spanish labour market : does the origin of human capital matter? by Esteve Sanromà Meléndez( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this paper is to analyse the role played by the different components of human capital in the wage determination of recent immigrants within the Spanish labour market. Using microdata from the Encuesta Nacional de Inmigrantes 2007, the paper examines returns to human capital of immigrants, distinguishing between human capital accumulated in their home countries and in Spain. It also examines the impact on wages of the legal status. The evidence shows that returns to host country sources of human capital are higher than returns to foreign human capital, reflecting the limited international transferability of the latter. The only exception occurs in the case of immigrants from developed countries and immigrants who have studied in Spain. Whatever their home country, they obtain relatively high wage returns to education, including the part not acquired in the host country. Having legal status in Spain is associated with a substantial wage premium of around 15%. Lastly, the overall evidence confirms the presence of a strong heterogeneity in wage returns to different kinds of human capital and in the wage premium associated to the legal status as a function of the immigrants' area of origin. -- Immigration ; wages ; human capital

Human capital spillovers, productivity and regional convergence in Spain by Raúl Ramos( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper analyses the differential impact of human capital, in terms of different levels of schooling, on regional productivity and convergence. The potential existence of geographical spillovers of human capital is also considered by applying spatial panel data techniques. The empirical analysis of Spanish provinces between 1980 and 2007 confirms the positive impact of human capital on regional productivity and convergence, but reveals no evidence of any positive geographical spillovers of human capital. In fact, in some specifications the spatial lag presented by tertiary studies has a negative effect on the variables under consideration. -- Regional convergence ; productivity ; human capital composition ; geographical spillovers
Overeducation and local labour markets in Spain by Raúl Ramos( )

2 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this paper is to analyze the influence of individual variables and some characteristics related to spatial mobility in regional labour markets on overeducation in Spain. With this aim, we use microdata from the Spanish Budget Family Survey to estimate a logit model for overeducation probability taking into account the problem of selection bias and the presence of data of different levels (individuals and territory). The obtained results permit us to conclude that the size of local labour markets and the possibility of extending the job search to other labour markets through commuting are relevant factors to explain overeducation in the Spanish labour market. In spite of the differences in terms of labour market institutions, our results are very similar to the ones obtained for other countries. -- educational mismatch ; Spain ; multilevel ; commuting ; job mismatch ; differential overeducation

Segregación laboral y estructuras salariales de nativos e inmigrantes en España : un análisis con datos emparejados empresa-trabajador by Hipólito J Simón Pérez( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El trabajo examina el origen de las diferencias en las estructuras salariales de la población nativa e inmigrante en el mercado laboral español, prestando especial atención al efecto de la segregación de los inmigrantes por razón de ocupación y establecimiento. Se constata que los inmigrantes procedentes de países en desarrollo presentan un salario promedio inferior y una estructura salarial más comprimida que los nativos pero que, por el contrario, los procedentes de países desarrollados presentan un salario superior y una estructura salarial más dispersa. La evidencia obtenida revela que las discrepancias en las distribuciones salariales de los nativos y de ambos grupos de inmigrantes se explican en gran medida por las diferencias relativas en sus características observadas, destacando en este sentido la influencia de la segregación de los inmigrantes en estructuras laborales, y muy particularmente en ocupaciones, distintas a las de los nativos
Essays on informal labor markets by Adriana Patricia Vega Núñez( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissertation deals with the analysis of informality in developing countries considering both the worker's and the firm's perspective. Within a context of a strong presence of this phenomenon in the majority of South and Central America countries, the main goal of this research is to explore the factors that may influence the prevalence and the consequences of informality in this region. The analysis focuses in two dimensions of the informal labor market: the firms and the workforce, divided in three main topics. The initial point of analysis intends to provide evidence of the presence of informal firms and its differences between the South and Central America countries. Therefore, we evaluate which are the cross-national factors that account for the prevalence of informality and we try to identify the reason influencing the decision to run a business in the borderlines of the formal or informal sector in this region. It is worth mentioning that with these objectives in mind, this study is the first analysis using firm-level data covering a wide sample of South and Central America countries. In this sense, we found three main results on firms' informality. Firstly, it sheds light on the association between informality and the characteristics of firms. In this sense, small firms, less productive firms, older firms, one proprietor firms, less technological firms and manufacturing firms are more likely to operate informally. As second result, it reveals that entrepreneurs face obstacles in their operations, such as the presence of informal competitors, financial and tax administration obstacles, which positively influence informality. Thirdly, it analyses the effect of cross-country determinants of the likelihood of being informal firm. These factors are associated with the average GDP growth and the governance performance of the country. While the previous analysis addresses informality as a challenge issue to deal with in developing countries, the next two analyses focus their attention in Ecuador. The next tòpic explains the determinants of the job placement process in the Ecuadorian formal and informal labor market. In this regard, it seeks to answer weather being part of an informal job is a worker's voluntary decision, or it is because there are restrictions on the number of job placements in the formal sector. In order to consider both workers' preferences and employers' hiring decisions, we apply a bivariate binomial probit model with partial observability since we can only observe the joint decision of both actors of the market. The study supports the presence of a restriction in the number of formal jobs in the economy and therefore existence of both, voluntary and involuntary informal employment. Nonetheless, these results lead directly to a next question, explicitly, how are the dynamics of the formal and informal sectors and which paterns affected the transitions within the labor sectors. Therefore, the next topic provides an overview of the dynamics of the formal and informal sectors and some specific patterns of the transitions within the labor sectors. We specify a transition matrix and a multinomial logit model to identify the movements across the sectors and the effect of each worker's characteristics on the probability of moving to a given a sector. The transition matrix results suggest an important dynamics not only in and out of the labor market but also across the sectors; and as well that individuals are searching for job opportunities in both formal and informal sectors
