En América Latina, el método de las Necesidades Básicas Insatisfechas (NBI)ha significado un importante aporte para la identificación de ciertas carencias críticas de la población y la caracterización de la pobreza. En la presente nota se hace una revisión de las principales características de dicho método, tanto en su forma más generalizada de aplicación como en las variantes propuestas en años recientes. Adicionalmente, se incluye un resumen de los indicadores utilizados en algunos mapas de pobreza construidos en un gran número de países de la región. Con base en la síntesis de las ventajas y desventajas del método NBI contenidas en el documento, las conclusiones del mismo apuntan a destacar especialmente su utilidad en cuanto instrumento de caracterización de la población en términos de la insatisfacción de determinadas necesidades básicas, más que como una metodología de medición de la pobreza propiamente tal.
