Working Papers from Universidad Iberoamericana, Department of Economics

Abstract: Through the application of poverty transition analysis for years 2006-2010, the paper found that between 27% and el 32% of the Mexican population could be considered as chronically poor (Tpp), and that between 42% and 47% could be considered as sustainable not poor(Tnn). In turn, between 12% and 15% could be considered entering poverty in a downward mobility phase (Tnp), and between 10% and 12% could be considered leaving poverty in an upward mobility phase (Tpn). Populations in Tpp and Tnp status are mostly characterized by their lacking of access to health, to social security, and food on a regular basis. All of these seem to imply that it is vulnerability to idiosyncratic or systemic crisis what keep them in a low well-being situation.
