Data of the Month: Colombia Municipal MPI

12 May, 2020

The National Administrative Department of Statistics (DANE) of Colombia launched its Municipal Multidimensional Poverty Measure from Census Sources. This measure consists of five dimensions: educational conditions of the household, conditions of childhood and youth, health, employment and housing conditions, and access to public services.

Municipalities with the highest levels of municipal multidimensional poverty are located predominantly in the Orinoquía-Amazon and Pacific regions, and municipalities with the lowest percentages are in the Central and Eastern regions of the country.

On the DANE website it is possible to find a series of maps with detailed information on each dimension and indicator at the municipal level.
