This paper studies Mexican poverty levels by state during the 1992-2002 period, in order to evaluate the effect that the business cycle and governmental policies have had on poverty levels. We find that behind the business cycle and the urban poverty are inversely related and that institutional transfers reduce poverty both in urban and rural areas.// Este trabajo estudia los niveles mexicanos de pobreza por estado, durante el periodo 1992-2002, con el fin de evaluar el efecto que el ciclo económico y las políticas gubernamentales han tenido en ella. Encontramos que el ciclo economico y la pobreza urbana están inversamente relacionados y que las transferencias institucionales disminuyen la pobreza tanto en las áreas urbanas como en las rurales.
