Este documento construye una medida de pobreza multidimensional para Bolivia basado en todos los derechos fundamentales establecidos en la Constitución de 2008 que pueden ser medidos en las encuestas; y documenta los cambios de pobreza observados en Bolivia durante la última década utilizando un enfoque multidimensional. En particular, extendemos el análisis de Hernani-Limarino (2010) de la evolución de la pobreza monetaria con un análisis que incorpora cinco dimensiones no monetarias: acceso a educación, seguridad social de corto plazo (salud), seguridad social de largo plazo (pensiones), vivienda adecuada, y servicios básicos de la vivienda (electricidad, agua, saneamiento básico y telecomunicaciones). Nuestro análisis muestra que, a pesar de la reducción observada en la pobreza monetaria, la pobreza no monetaria ha permanecido alta y elusiva durante la última década en Bolivia.
