Social Panorama of Latin America 2013

The 2013 edition of this publication presents official measurements for the analysis of income poverty and seeks fresh approaches to poverty and well-being, placing special emphasis on multidimensional approaches. These approaches are exploratory and therefore not comprehensive. They have nevertheless been tackled in this year’s edition of Social Panorama because one thing is certain: the need is emerging in social policy design, in the evaluation of social development and in new demands of society for a more nuanced analysis of social progress and lags to underpin more integrated public policy design in the region.

Landmarks in the discourse on social protection in Latin America and overview of health and pension system coverage: A synopsis

The present and future well-being of all individuals is subject to risks such as illness, the multiple restrictions involved in meeting the care needs of children and the frail or those with disabilities, periods of unemployment and underemployment, and the radical decline in (or loss of) income during old age, whose impact varies in both duration and intensity. Although asymmetrical socioeconomic circumstances are a crucial determining factor, they are, to differing degrees, beyond individuals' control.
