Este estudio tiene por objeto evaluar el sistema de subsidios para servicios públicos en Colombia. Con base en la Encuesta de Calidad de Vida del DANE y de la información de tarifas disponible, se caracterizan los esquemas de subsidios vigentes para los servicios de electricidad, telefonía básica y agua, se evalúan sus propiedades de focalización, su impacto sobre el poder adquisitivo de los hogares, y su sostenibilidad financiera, con el fin de determinar su eficacia, y se evalúan esquemas alternativos de subsidio, con el fin de proponer mejoras que puedan implementarse en el corto y mediano plazos.
