The estimation of the multidimensional poverty index is weighted 5 dimensions: Dimension 1 (Education), Dimension 2 (Access to health services), Dimension 3 (Quality and services of housing), Dimension 4 (Assets in the home) and Dimension 5 (Social). The analysis of the 5 dimensions consists of 16 indicators, whose construction of counting methodology, identifying the minimum amount of deprivation dimensions to estimate the multidimensional poverty index. The source of information comes from the information of the General Census of Population and Housing 2010, corresponding to the information contained in the territorial integration at the locality level, for the dimensions and selected indicators, so it allows the analysis of the evolution of multidimensional poverty throughout the study period in the State of Veracruz.
