In this paper, time series on the extent of poverty in Montevideo (1983-92) are derived and analysed using different measures and approaches in the definition of the poverty line. The results show that the picture of how poverty has developed is much affected by the use of and absolute or relative poverty line. Meanwhile relative poverty is quite stable, the proportion of the population under a poverty line indicating a constant living standard is closely related to GDP. The measures that were used are descomposable. The results show that young persons, especially children are poverty prone and that a high education of the household head means a low risk of becoming poor.
