    Abstract

    (Disponible en idioma inglés únicamente) En este trabajo se procesan 76 encuestas de hogares de 17 países latinoamericanos, para documentar las variaciones de la pobreza y la desigualdad durante los años 90. Mostramos que no hay ningún país en América Latina donde la desigualdad haya disminuido durante los años 90. La pobreza disminuyó en 10 u 11 de los 17 países de los que tenemos disponibles datos de encuestas, dependiendo de la medida de la pobreza empleada. Lo persistentemente elevado de la desigualdad impidió una mayor disminución de la pobreza.
