Abstract

Desde una perspectiva multidimensional al análisis de la pobreza crónica, se adiciono una dimensión antropométrica como referencia integral de bienestar, reinterpretando el significado fisiológico de la existencia de diferentes tipos de desnutrición en niños Argentinos entre 0,5 y 6 años de edad como el de aquellos que sufrirán carencias globales esenciales en el futuro. Indices de Sen y Gini antropométricos demostraron que aquellas familias con desnutrición infantil poseen distribuciones del ingreso más desiguales. Indices de Foster-Greer-Thorbecke bidimensionales identificaron las regiones de NEA y NOA como las más perjudicadas en términos de capacidades cognitivas y culturales en la siguiente generación de pobres./ From a perspective of multidimensional poverty analysis, an anthropometric dimension was added as an integral representation of future welfare, by reinterpreting the current nutritional state of 0.5 to 6 year-old children in Argentina as those who will suer deprivation in Sen's functioningcapability terms. A two-dimensions Foster-Greer-Thorbecke poverty index has been proposed along with Sen's and Gini's anthropometric indexes to appraise inequality in families undergoing children's malnutrition. Having had malnutrition means more unequal income distribution. NEA's and NOA's regions will have greater problems in functioning, capabilities and cultural barriers when considering the next poor's generation.
