Variaciones en la medición estatal de la pobreza por ingresos según índices de precios locales: México 2000-2008
Using the micro data from the ENIGH, the income poverty at the state level was calculated in the eleven states that increased its sample for the period 2000-2008. It is assumed that consumer price indices at the city level are more accurate than the national to describe the actual price level encountered by consumers within states. Food baskets values and household income were updated using consumer price indices at the city level. Regarding the measurements made by the CONEVAL, in some cases the variations are above and in others below. The comparative statics analysis revealed that the results primarily reflect changes in the baskets values and not changes in real income. With the intention to put into perspective the exercise carried out and approach briefly the economic policy of poverty measurement in Mexico, we conclude with some final remarks.
