Poverty Measurement



Mexico´s Latest Poverty Stats




Christopher Wilson and Gerardo Silva, professors at Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, published an article in the blog where they comment on the results of the Poverty Measurement 2012 in Mexico.


The authors stress the importance for Mexico of having a multidimensional measurement because thanks to it important issues may be revised, among others, for example, despite poverty has decreased; income is one of the factors that influence on its increase. 
Despite indicators such as education, housing and healthcare have registered improvements and even global economy has started to grow, Mexicans have not been able to increase their income as quickly as prices at international level. 


Wilson and Silva explain that the purpose of their article is to detail several outputs of poverty measurement in Mexico conducted by the CONEVAL (Consejo Nacional de Evaluación de la Política de Desarrollo Social: Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy) and show some possible explanations to the poverty trends based on the income and multidimensional poverty.
