Abstract

Resumen: Un modelo switching aplicado a información de la encuesta ENNViH 2002 evidencia diferencias significativas en la formación de habilidad cognitiva infantil através de los estratos sociales mexicanos. Un pequeño conjunto de variables de política pública y de características económicas de la localidad detecta un importante gradiente y variaciones en los determinantes familiares de la habilidad cognitiva infantil. Los niños de estratos sociales bajos adquieren una menor habilidad cognitiva, y dependen de la satisfacción de necesidades más básicas, que los de niveles mas altos. En los estratos bajos los coeficientes son consistentes con la existencia de restricciones de riqueza, que impiden una inversión óptima en el desarrollo infantil.
