BRACAMONTES NEVAREZ, Joaquín; CAMBEROS CASTRO, Mario  and  HUESCA REYNOSO, Luis. The impact in the early years of the Oportunidades program by type of poverty in Mexico and Baja California, 2002-2006. Estud. front [online]. 2014, vol.15, n.30, pp.127-154. ISSN 2395-9134.

This paper shows a limited impact of the Oportunidades program in reducing poverty in Mexico and Baja California during the study period (2002-2006), which is due to insufficient resources and the exclusion of poor households. In the country the three types of poverty had a modest reduction and in Baja California capabilities poverty declined slightly, but the food and heritage poverty increased despite the program.

Keywords : poverty lines; static microsimulation; poverty.
