The Minimum Income Standard (MIS) is the monthly income required by a household of a certain size to achieve the minimum socially acceptable standard of living. From the perspective of MIS, the minimum dignified standard of living is determined by social consensus about what it means to have a dignified life at a given place and time. This document reports the research process through which CEEY arrived at the determination of the Minimum Income Standard for four of Mexico’s largest cities. The Mexican society can find its own image here when trying to determine the minimum income that is true to the constitutional mandate. CEEY is confident that the results of this research will facilitate the discussions on the minimum wage and other measures used as a standard of living in Mexico. A fluid dialogue is needed to strengthen social cohesion and the understanding of what is required to make Mexico a prosperous and inclusive country.
