The changing picture of inequality in Latin America
Mar 25, 2021
This paper characterizes patterns and changes in economic inequality in Latin America for the period 1992-2018, based on harmonized microdata from around 350 national household surveys of all the countries in the region. After a decade of some improvements, there are signs of deceleration and even stagnation on the road toward reducing disparities in income and other variables. Inequality remains a top social concern in Latin America.
