image of Poverty trends in the period 1997–2000

During the second half of the 1990s, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and most Central American countries experienced sustained economic growth, and several of them made strides in the fight against poverty. In South America, meanwhile, there was a process of slowing growth, stagnation and subsequent recovery, which in some cases translated into the preservation or deterioration of living conditions. Overall, while the number of people living in Latin America grew from 204 million to 211 million in the 1997–1999 period, the percentage of poor households and poor people remained relatively constant.
