Caracterización socioeconómica de las personas con privaciones habitacionales : un abordaje de los usuarios de la red de refugios de Montevideo
The aim of this research is to assess the homeless’ characteristics in Montevideo, pointing out in their capacity to link with the community. Given the capabilities and functioning framework developed by Amartya Sen, we analyze the multidimensionality poverty and the social exclusion. Even if these individuals share the fact that they have slept at least one night during the winter in a homeless’ shelter, there are many differences in their functionings. We carried out a survey in a representative day in the winter of 2005, with socio economic questions, and also we implement a Rorschach’s test. The main results are: even if their income is below to the poverty line, they do not present high levels of extreme poverty respect to their income. They have extremely weak primary affective links and many difficulties to have a job. Finally, there are differences between males and females respect to their labor market performance and their homelessness’ path.
