The profile of poor households

Most of the poor in Latin America reside in housing where they do not have access to drinking water and, to a somewhat lesser extent, in dwellings where there are more than three persons to a room. These households also exhibit high demographic dependency rates and low employment densities. In addition, the heads of household generally have completed fewer than three years of schooling and are unemployed in some instances. The children and young people belonging to poor households often have deficient educational environments, begin working at an early age and, in many cases, neither study nor work.
