Abstract

In 2009, CONEVAL (Consejo Nacional de Evaluación de la Política de Desarrollo Social) presented the official methodology to measure multidimensional poverty in Mexico, which is a set of intuitive indicators that measure income and social rights deprivation, taking into account the territorial context. To follow the principles of technical rigor, transparency, and impartiality, CONEVAL decided to publish all the necessary elements to reproduce its multidimensional poverty measures, including (a) adopted methodology, (b) databases, and (c) Stata and SPSS programs used for generating the indexes. In this presentation, we will show how Stata and SPSS were used to produce the Mexican multidimensional poverty measures as well as the process to “equalize” both programs.
