Education and income distribution. An unconditional quantile approach Ecuador: 2007-2016

Abstract : Among all the possible transmission channels that could worse income distribution, education has specifically provoked a significant interest in academy insofar as its distributive impact still remains ambiguous. In this context, the case of Ecuador deserves special attention for the period 2007-2016, during which the country experienced a schooling upgrading never seen before in its history. Hence, the main thrust of this master thesis is to analyze the distributive effects of education on labor income as well as the impact of educational levels (basic, primary, secondary, university, etc.) on the different quantiles of the aggregate distribution for Ecuador throughout the decade under analysis. In other words, the aim is to examine whether the educational expansion abovementioned has exacerbated short term inequalities–particularly, benefiting the upper layers of the distribution–or has been decisive in improving the schooling attainment–and therefore, narrowing income revenue gaps–for the poorer.
