    Se propone una metodología de identificación individual de potenciales beneficiarios de programas sociales. Esta herramienta comprende dos etapas: en la primera se determina un índice de bienestar y en la segunda los puntos de corte que permiten distinguir a los hogares que califican como potenciales beneficiarios. La estimación del índice se basa en una práctica extendida en la literatura especializada: análisis de los componentes principales con escalamiento óptimo. El cálculo de los umbrales es lo novedoso de este trabajo, y se basa en la minimización de una función que depende de los errores de focalización a los que se enfrenta cualquier programa social: infiltración y subcobertura.
