Pobreza en la adolescencia en áreas rurales y urbanas en Uruguay
AbstractThere is partial evidence that suggests that adolescences living in rural aereas in Uruguay enjoy fewer opportunities than those living in urban aereas. In this paper we aim to provide a well-being comparison of adolescent living in rural and urban areas in Uruguay. The analytical framework in based on Capability Approach developed by Sen (1992) and Nussbaum (2001). We follow the methodological recommendations proposed by Alkire & Foster (2007). In sharp contrast in the conclusions from the country's official income-based poverty measure, which acknowledges lower poverty levels in rural areas, our results shows that youngsters living in rural aereas live in worse conditions than urban ones.
