AGUILAR-ESTRADA, Alma Esther; CAAMAL-CAHUICHO, Ignacio  and  PORTILLO-VAZQUEZ, Marcos. Public policies for the pooest municipalities of Mexico. Estud. soc [online]. 2018, vol.28, n.51. ISSN 0188-4557.

Objective: Propose a typology that allows to distinguish intensities of poverty among the poorest municipalities of the country, and from this, suggest differentiated public policies. Methodology: Based on official statistics, multivariate statistical methods are applied to form clusters and define public policy proposals for each. Results: In 7 out of 10 municipalities that represent 24% of the population, poverty is widespread, but when grouped into four conglomerates, different priorities and potentialities are observed. Limits: The municipal statistics available for poverty are from the year 2010. Conclusions: Poverty must be grouped, prioritized and combated with a mixed strategy of universalization and targeting. Each conglomerate demands a different way of combining or choosing between public investment, conditional transfers and promotion of rural agricultural and non-agricultural employment.

Keywords : regional development; multivariate analysis; targeting; poverty; public policies; typology.
