Abstract

Entre los resultados obtenidos por el análisis descriptivo presentado aquí destacan los siguientes hechos: 1) la participación de los ingresos por trabajo de los hogares oscila de manera similar a los ciclos de la economía; 2) las transferencias representaron más de un quinto de los ingresos de la población rural en 2006; 3) la participación de los ingresos por negocios propios ha ido reduciéndose a lo largo de los años, especialmente en el sector rural; 4) las remesas juegan un papel importante en los ingresos totales de los hogares (alrededor de 12.1% en 2006), pero su importancia ha decrecido en el sector rural debido al programa Oportunidades, el cual ya representa más del 40% de todas las transferencias; y 5) la composición familiar, la educación y la posición en el empleo del jefe de la familia son características determinantes en la situación de pobreza de los hogares.
