Abstract

Este trabajo analiza, estática y dinámicamente, los cambios en las condiciones de vida de los hogares en Colombia entre los años 1997 y 2003 mediante un indicador alternativo que incorpora aspectos de salud y el tiempo gastado en desplazamiento. Estas variables reducen la importancia otorgada al capital físico en otros indicadores de calidad de vida y, a la vez, aumentan las diferencias entre las zonas rurales y urbanas. Este indicador provee nuevos elementos para la discusión sobre políticas de salud y de transporte.
