41 p, 634.1 KB Equality of opportunity for well-being / Gerszon Mahler, Daniel (University of Copenhagen) ; Ramos Morilla, Xavier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada)
A growing literature has tried to measure the extent to which individuals have equal opportunities to acquire income. At the same time, policy makers have doubled down on efforts to go beyond income when measuring well-being. [...]

29 p, 471.6 KB Selection and educational attainment : why some children are left behind? Evidence from a middle-income country / Méndez-Errico, Luciana (Universidad de la República) ; Ramos Morilla, Xavier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada)
We model schooling as a sequential process and examine why some children are left behind. We focus on the factors that explain selection at early stages of the education system. Our findings for Uruguay suggest that long-term factors, such as parental background or ethnicity matter across all education stages while the effect of short-term factors, such as family income, wear out as individuals progress in the education system, suggesting a severe selection process at early stages.

26 p, 346.8 KB Is inequality of opportunity robust to the measurement approach? / Ramos Morilla, Xavier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada) ; Van de Gaer, Dirk (Université Catholique de Louvain)
Recent literature has suggested many ways of measuring equality of opportunity. We analyze in a systematic manner the various approaches put forth in the literature to show whether and to what extent different choices matter empirically. [...]

46 p, 661.4 KB The effect of changes in the statutory minimum working age on educational, labor and health outcomes / Vall-Castello, Judit (Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Centre de Recerca en Economia i Salut) ; Jiménez-Martín, Sergi (Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Barcelona Graduate School of Economics) ; Del Rey Canteli, Elena (Universitat de Girona)
In this paper we explore the effects of a labor market reform that changed the statutory minimum working age in Spain in 1980. In particular, the reform raised the statutory minimum working age from 14 to 16 years old, while the minimum age for attaining compulsory education was kept at 14 until 1990. [...]

36 p, 369.7 KB Wage setting in the Colombian manufacturing industry / Agudelo, Sonia A. (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) ; Sala Lorda, Hèctor (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)
We show that wage setting in the Colombian manufacturing industry is not fundamentally driven by labor productivity in contrast to the standard theoretical prediction. On the contrary, internal institutional arrangements – payroll taxation,the minimum wage or the price wedge between manufacturing and consumption prices – together with a higher exposure to international trade – connected to the increasing globalization of the Colombian economy – appear as the crucial drivers. [...]

34 p, 261.9 KB Wage effects of non-wage labour costs / Cervini Pla, María (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) ; Ramos Morilla, Xavier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada) ; Silva Becerra, José Ignacio (Universitat de Girona)
We study short- and long-term wage effects of two important elements of non-wage labour costs: firing costs and payroll taxes. We exploit a reform that introduced substantial reduction in these two provisions for unemployed workers aged less than thirty and over forty five years. [...]

20 p, 217.1 KB Polarisation and health / Blanco-Perez, Cristina (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) ; Ramos Morilla, Xavier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada)
This paper examines the effect of income polarisation on individual health. We argue that polarisation captures much better the social tension and conflict that underlie some of the pathways linking income disparities and individual health, and which have been traditionally proxied by inequality.

25 p, 225.0 KB Long term earnings inequality, earnings instability and temporary employment in Spain : 1993–2000 / Cervini Pla, María (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada) ; Ramos Morilla, Xavier (Universitast Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada)
This paper provides a longitudinal perspective on changes in Spanish male earnings inequality for the period 1993-2000, by decomposing the earnings covariance structure into its permanent and transitory parts. [...]

51 p, 669.6 KB On the measurement of polarisation : a questionnaire study / Amiel, Yoram (Ruppin Academic Center) ; Cowell, Frank ; Ramos Morilla, Xavier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada)
Starting from the axiomatisation of polarisation contained in Esteban and Ray (1994) and Chakravarty and Majumdar (2001) we investigate whether people's perceptions of income polarisation is consistent with the key axioms. [...]
