The year's edition discusses the impact of recent economic trends on poverty, employment and income distribution; presents quantitative evidence on the high returns brought by investment in more and better education, not only for children, but their households. It also examines women's important contribution to the family income as a result of their growing participation in economic activities and discusses the emergence of new social policy proposals, analyzing the main reforms being implemented in the health, education and social security sectors.




The Social Panorama of Latin America is an expression of the continuing efforts of the secretariat of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) to incorporate the social dimension into its annual appraisals of regional development. The report is prepared periodically by the Statistics and Economic Projections Division and the Social Development Division of ECLAC.
