En este trabajo se estiman funciones de demanda por los servicios públicos domiciliarios de agua y electricidad para una muestra de las ciudades más importantes en Colombia. Teniendo como fuente de información la Encuesta de Calidad de Vida 2003, se utiliza una metodología no lineal que aprovecha las particularidades de la función de oferta de estos bienes (bloque de precios crecientes, IBP), para identificar la demanda. Con la estimación de la función de demanda se obtienen elasticidades ingreso y precio, y se estima el efecto que tiene un aumento en el precio del consumo básico sobre el bienestar de las familias beneficiarias mediante la variación compensada y la pérdida irrecuperable, la cual se cuantifica en aproximadamente treinta y cinco millones de dólares por año, por concepto de los subsidios brutos en acueducto, alcantarillado y electricidad.
