Monitoring Socio-Economic Conditions in Argentina, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay (Vol. 3) : Monitoring socio-economic conditions in Paraguay (Английский)

The study looks at the socio-economic conditions for four Latin American countries, focusing on a different country in each volume. Volume 1, documents the socio-economic situation in Argentina, mainly based on a wide range of distributional, labor and social statistics collected by the Permanent Household Survey (EPH) from 1992 to 2004. Argentina has witnessed dramatic distributional, labor and social changes in the last three decades. The country has experienced a sharp increase in poverty, inequality, unemployment, and informal labor. Volume 2, describes the socio-economic situation in Chile based on labor and social data collected by the National Socio-Economic Survey (CASEN) from 1990 to 2000. Chile achieved a remarkable reduction in poverty, mainly due to economic growth, as inequality has remained very high. Volume 3, documents the socio-economic situation in Paraguay. The document is mainly based on data collected since 1995 by household surveys. Paraguay is one of the poorest and most unequal countries in the region. The combination of sustained income inequality, stagnation and high population growth led to increasing poverty throughout the second half of the 1990s and the early 2000s. Volume 4, documents the socio-economic situation in Uruguay. The information is based on labor and social data collected by the Encuesta Continua de Hogares (ECH) from 1989 to 2003. In contrast to the advances in poverty reduction recorded since the mid-eighties, in the last years Uruguay witnessed a deterioration of distributional, labor and social conditions. However, the country's social performance is still one of the best in the region.
