Constructing Mexico’s multidimensional poverty measure – presentation

A presentation given by Dr. Gonzalo Hernández Licona, Executive Secretary of CONEVAL, Mexico’s National Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy, on the methodological and institutional aspects of the construction of a multidimensional poverty measure, is now available to view in English.

Mexico’s innovative measure evaluates income levels alongside other dimensions of poverty, such as education, housing, health, social cohesion and access to food. It was co-developed with OPHI researchers and adopted by the Mexican government in 2009.

Hernández’s presentation, “Measuring Poverty in Mexico”, was given at the 2nd Meeting of the post-MDGs Contact Group in 2012 and is available to view in English as a power point, and as a video on the CONEVAL website.
