Resumen

Este estudio presenta un análisis exploratorio sobre la correlación entre fortaleza institucional, tranquilidad y emprendimiento en una muestra de 23 departamentos de Colombia con datos de 2014. Para lograr este propósito, se propusieron y construyeron tres índices basados en definiciones seminales-conceptuales o estándares internacionales de evaluación, a saber: 1) Índice de Fortaleza Institucional, 2) Índice de Construcción de Paz (basado en el Índice de Paz Negativo y el Índice de Paz Positiva), y 3) Índice de Emprendimiento Productivo. Los resultados no muestran una correlación significativa entre los tres índices. Por un lado, existe una correlación significativa (p<0,05) entre el Índice de Fortaleza Institucional y el Índice de Emprendimiento Productivo. Por otra parte, hay correlaciones negativas no significativas entre el Índice de Paz Positiva y el Índice de Fortaleza Institucional, el Índice de Capacidad Empresarial Productiva y el Índice de Paz Positiva, y el Índice de Capacidad Empresarial Productiva y el Índice de Construcción de Paz. En una segunda mirada, la población del departamento fue la medida con mayor número de correlaciones significativas (p<0.01) entre variables relacionadas con el emprendimiento productivo, el empleo, el Producto Interno Bruto, la sofisticación industrial, la innovación (patentes) y la delincuencia. Finalmente, se discuten las conclusiones y las investigaciones futuras.
