  • Laura Cepeda Emiliani



En este trabajo se presenta el perfil de la pobreza de las ciudades de Barranquilla y Soledad, a nivel de barrio. Utilizando mapas de pobreza, se muestra la distribución espacial de la población pobre, de los logros educativos, de la informalidad, de la pertenencia étnica y de los inmigrantes en estas dos ciudades. Dentro de los resultados vale destacar que se encontró una concentración de población pobre, de bajos resultados educativos y de altos niveles de informalidad en las localidades Suroccidente y Suroriente de Barranquilla. ABSTRACT: This paper presents a poverty profile for Barranquilla and Soledad. With maps, the spatial distribution of population below the poverty line, of academic achievements (average years of schooling and literacy rates), labor informality, ethnic groups and immigrants is shown. The southwest and southeast of Barranquilla concentrate the most population below the poverty line, the worst academic achievements and high informality rates.
