Este trabajo estudia la evolución reciente de las condiciones de vida en Colombia con un énfasis en el crecimiento de la clase media. Entre 2002 y 2011, el ingreso per cápita real de los hogares creció 36%, la participación de la clase media en la población total pasó de 16% a 27% y la pobreza disminuyó de 50% a 34% Adicionalmente, los hogares de todos los grupos sociales mejoraron sus condiciones de vida en varias dimensiones: educación, salud, trabajo y características de las viviendas, entre otras. A pesar del aumento reciente, el tamaño de la clase media en Colombia sigue siendo relativamente menor al de otros países latinoamericanos y los hogares de clase media no han superado los problemas estructurales de informalidad laboral y bajo nivel educativo.
