The statistical characterization of the living standard and quality of life, according to the time and place in which these processes occur and develop is achieved by means of indicators which must capture both the qualitative and the quantitative aspects of the complex processes that define this area. Therefore, in order to be known and directed these social phenomena and processes, bearing numerous quantitative and qualitative characteristics must be translated into numerical measures that form the content and form of the behavior of social indicators. These social indicators form a variable in time and space. The dynamic nature of these indicators requires continuous improvement of the content, coverage and calculation methodology.
