Abstract

El objetivo de este documento es analizar la evolución de la bancarización en Colombia a través de un índice que reúne medidas tradicionales de cobertura y otras asociadas a la intensidad de uso de los servicios financieros por parte de la población de cada departamento; la metodología utilizada es la de componentes principales. El análisis del indicador sugiere que los principales avances en materia de bancarización se concentran en la región central y en Bogotá, mientras que algunos departamentos presentan rezagos significativos. Adicionalmente, los resultados resaltan la necesidad de incluir indicadores de intensidad de uso, en la medida en que estos permiten establecer con mayor precisión el grado de integración de los servicios financieros en la actividad cotidiana de los individuos.
