CALDERON VILLARREAL, Cuauhtémoc  and  PELAEZ HERREROS, Óscar. Living conditions in areas of high social deprivation and socio-demographic factors of multidimensional poverty in Baja California. Nóesis, Rev. cienc. soc. [online]. 2018, vol.27, n.54, pp.78-104.  Epub July 03, 2020. ISSN 2395-8669.

The information of this paper comes from a census that we apply in areas of high social deprivation in the municipalities of Mexicali, Tecate, Tijuana and Playas de Rosarito, obtaining data on living conditions of 39,418 residents. The paper describes the results of the census in relation to the characteristics of dwellings and household members, and classifies the population according to the categories of multidimensional poverty. Later, an ordinal logit model was used to estimate the relationship between socio-demographic conditions and poverty, and to define the profile most likely to suffer from poverty. The results indicate that the most prone profile is to be a young unemployed woman, of indigenous culture, with disabilities, born in the southwest of the country, who has not lived in the United States, and resident in a large household, with few family members employed and female head of household with low level of education, in Playas de Rosarito.

Keywords : multidimensional poverty; ordered logit model; Baja California.
