    El trabajo revisa el desempeño de 5 programas de asistencia social para llegar a los lugares más pobres del Ecuador. Se muestra que aun sin observar la incidencia de dicho gasto a nivel provincial o cantonal, el desempeño puede estimarse utilizando información desagregada de la distribución del gasto total y de la incidencia de la pobreza al mismo nivel. Asimismo, se muestra que en algunos de dichos programas, es necesario el rediseño de sus estrategias de focalización geográfica para que puedan llegar a las áreas más pobres del país y, con ello, ayudar a reducir la desigualdad de la distribución del bienestar. En el trabajo se cuantifica cuánto de esta desigualdad se debe a la desigualdad existente entre las diversas zonas geográficas del Ecuador.
