MARCOS, Mariana. Habitat types: definitions and challenges for their measurement based on the case of Greater Buenos Aires. Pap. poblac [online]. 2021, vol.27, n.108, pp.75-118.  Epub 06-Dic-2021. ISSN 2448-7147.

This paper extends the existing approach to habitat types (or settlement types). Although these environments are sociodemographic scenarios with great differentiating potential in large urban agglomerations of Latin America, the use of the perspective is not widespread. This work addresses the challenges to reach operational definitions adapted to a concrete case and

the constraints derived from data availability. Through the analysis of the case of Buenos Aires, we seek to contribute on two levels: in the most general, we provide evidence to broaden methodological and conceptual framework, and conditions of replicability in other geographical and temporal contexts; and at the level of the case of Buenos Aires, the first classification of its territory into habitat types is carried out.

Palabras llave : Habitat types; methodology; metropolis; Buenos Aires.
