WP Labor Input and Human Capital

Objectives:

This module presents the measurement methodology and series for labor input and human capital series for the ARKLEMS database.

Description:

The labor input and human capital workpackage of the ARKLEMS Project presents the methodology and series for the measurement of labor input’s contribution to Argentinean growth, based on Jorgenson`s methodology and EUKLEMS experience, considering not only personal attributes but also occupational and industry jobs characteristics.

The methodological investigation includes, some special measurement topics, such as: labor intensity, labor hoarding, the measurement of human capital in terms of productive human capital (the Mulligan-Sala-i-Martin approach) and human capital as wealth (Jorgenson- Fraumeni approach).

ARKLEMS research considers special features of Latinamerica and Argentine labor markets, such as the importance of the informality and segmentation in labor markets, underreported labor income, etc.
