Social Panorama of Latin America 2013

image of 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.

Different approaches to poverty measurement

Continuing with the trend observed in the region for a decade, the year 2012 saw a decline in the poverty rate across the region. The change in the indigence rate has been slower, so that there has been practically no variation in recent years in the number of persons living in extreme poverty.
