Women's representation at the top is still an issue on the agenda for equality. In this paper, we contribute to the literature on the effect of female application reviewers on the performance of women in selection processes. We define gender bias as any differential treatment of female and male applicants. We are particularly interested in whether...

Gender stereotypes, the assumptions concerning appropriate social roles for men and women, permeate the labor market. Analyzing information from over 2.5 million job advertisements on three different employment search websites in Mexico, exploiting approximately 235,00 that are explicitly gender-targeted, we find evidence that advertisements seekin...

Background The COVID-19 pandemic revealed large structural inequalities that led to disparities in health outcomes related to socioeconomic status. So far, most of the evidence is based on aggregated data or simulations with individual data, which point to various possible mechanisms behind the association. To date, there have been no studies regar...

México es un país altamente desigual y el origen étnico-racial es una de las dimensiones que contribuyen a esta desigualdad. Estudios anteriores han analizado las diferencias salariales por origen-étnico racial y rasgos lingüísticos, pero hasta ahora ninguno ha reconocido que la autoidentificación indígena puede llevar a sesgos de selección en el a...

Climate change could increase the frequency and duration of droughts that affect Mexico. This is particularly worrisome because many agricultural communities in the country are poor and with limited capacities for adaptation. This study estimated the impact of droughts on rural households’ wellbeing in Mexico, specifically on per capita earnings, p...

Audit studies have found employment discrimination in a variety of contexts. In Mexico, an overlooked aspect of this discrimination is that job advertisements usually include explicit criteria of gender, age, attractiveness, or require a photograph in the resume. These specifications, which we refer to as “explicit discrimination,” may affect which...
Article
In this study we analyze the extent of gender stereotypes in student evaluations of college professors on the internet site MisProfesores.com in Mexico. We downloaded more than 600,000 evaluations for the period 2008–18. The evaluations include three scores on a scale of 0 to 10: how easy it is to obtain a good grade, how much the professor helps h...

This research addresses the process of assigning scholarships for study abroad through Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología. Based on the data for scholarship applications 2013-2016, we analyzed the type of educational institutions that participate in the process, as well as the relationship between evaluator and candidate characterist...

En 2010, uno de cada tres jóvenes mexicanos mencionó en la Encuesta Nacional sobre Discriminación en México que su principal problema era la falta de oportunidades laborales y de experiencia (Conapred, 2011). Cuando les preguntaron cuáles eran las razones por las cuales no podían conseguir un empleo, el 37% señaló que no tenía la preparación sufici...

Antecedentes: En México, las mujeres obtienen un menor salario en promedio que los hombres. Si bien la discriminación explica parte de esta brecha, en este artículo mostramos que existen otras causales que contribuyen a ella. Metodología: Implementamos un experimento de laboratorio controlado con 404 personas en el que se aplican los juegos del ul...

Background: In Mexico, women obtain a lower wage than men on average. A potential cause of this gender pay gap is discrimination, but, in this paper, we show there are other channels that contribute to such gap. Methodology: We implement a laboratory experiment with 404 individuals in which they play the ultimatum game and a wage bargaining game. T...

Financial literacy has become an increasingly important ability in today’s complex world. Young people are among the least financially literate demographic groups. In this paper we present the results of a financial literacy survey conducted among high school students in Mexico City, the first effort to measure financial literacy among teenagers in...

We analize the gender wage gap in Mexico using the population censuses from 1990 to 2010. The wage gap has decreased on average during this period. In 2010, the gender wage gap was about 6%. However, the average hides important aspects of the wage gap across the distribution of wages. We find a stable pattern of "sticky floors" and a decreasing pat...

We analyze the consequences of a teenage pregnancy event in the short- and long-run in Mexico. Using longitudinal and cross-section data, we match females who got pregnant and those that did not based on a propensity score. Several balancing tests and specifications indicate that the main assumptions to estimate the average treatment effect on the...

In Mexico, as in most Latin American countries with indigenous populations, it is commonly believed that European phenotypes are preferred to mestizo or indigenous phenotypes. However, it is hard to test for such racial biases in the labor market using official statistics since race can only be inferred from native language. The experiment consiste...

Much of what we know about the marginal effect of pollution on infant mortality is derived from developed country data. However, given the lower levels of air pollution in developed countries, these estimates may not be externally valid to the developing country context if there is a nonlinear dose relationship between pollution and mortality or if...

El objetivo del presente trabajo es caracterizar a la población entre las edades de 15 a 29 años de edad en México que no estudia y no trabaja (NiNi). Utilizamos los Censos de Población de 1990, 2000 y 2010, la ENIGH para el periodo 1992‐2010 y la ENOE para el periodo 2005‐2010. Encontramos que la proporción de NiNis en la población ha disminuido p...

We analyze the impact of economic crises on mortality in Mexico. Identification of that effect is difficult because the GDP itself may be a function of health. In order to solve for endogeneity, we propose the use of two sets of instrumental variables at the state level. Our findings suggest that a one percent decrease in GDP would lead to an incre...

In the last couple of decades, and in particular during the last couple of administrations, the Mexican government has implemented various social programs targeted specifically to women, such as PROGRESA/Oportunidades, a child care program, and a gender equality program (PROIGUALDAD). The impact that those programs may have on the work behavior of...
