VARELA LLAMAS, Rogelio. Income Differences on Mexico's Northern Border: A Perspective on Formal and Informal Employment. Frontera norte [online]. 2015, vol.27, n.53, pp.177-203. ISSN 2594-0260.

Using information from the "Encuesta nacional de ocupación y empleo (ENOE)", income differences between formal and informal workers in the northern border states of Mexico are analyzed. The ANOVA methodology suggests that the income of workers differs according to the type of employment (formal/informal), type of work, and interaction effect. The logit model shows that the likelihood of informal employment is associated with lower levels of education and the job search process.

Keywords : informal employment; ANOVA; logit model; regional analysis; northern states.
