In addition to dealing with core issues such as children and the family, this publication shows trends in the early 1990s in important facets of social development such as poverty, income distribution, employment, social expenditure, education and pay levels. The analysis is complemented by numerous statistical tables.



The level of public social expenditure

The volume of resources allocated to social sectors continued to vary widely from country to country. Although in countries where levels were low, there was faster growth in social spending as a percentage of gross domestic product, the volume was still so low that it was only half the average for Latin America, trailing by six percentage points.
