Este trabajo analiza, estática y dinámicamente, los cambios en las condiciones de vida de los hogares en Colombia entre los años 1997 y 2003. Se propone un indicador alternativo y se contrasta a nivel nacional, regional y de centro poblacional con el Índice de Calidad de Vida (ICV) convencional. El indicador alterno reconoce la importancia que tienen aspectos de salud y el tiempo gastado en desplazamiento. Estas variables adicionales reducen el impacto de los aspectos concernientes al capital físico y distancian aún más las condiciones de las zonas rurales frente a las urbanas. La importancia de profundizar en las políticas de salud en las zonas rurales y en políticas que permitan disminuir el tiempo gastado en desplazamiento para ambas zonas se torna evidente.
