Segregation, Spatial Poverty and Inequality in the access to territorial assets

Segregation, Spatial Poverty and Inequality in the access to territorial assets

Año de inicio: 2014
In Process
This project aims to present a methodological contribution that should be a “public good”.

Context:

The authors highlight that this project expands and consolidates a collaboration that has been carried out over four years, between the Faculty of Economics and Business of the Universidad de Chile and the Center for Territorial Intelligence of the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez.

 

Methodology:

It combines information on economic revenue obtained from the CASEN survey, with detailed information available from the population census. Together, these sources allow for the spatialization of revenue.

In relation to the spatialization, this project addresses the relevant research topic of spatial socioeconomic segregation. In effect, it constructs a quantitative characterization of the socioeconomic segregation in Chilean cities, using up-to-date methodologies. In brief, it takes on the challenge of making comparisons over time and between cities, based on information on spatial access to public goods and bads: health services, green areas, garbage dumps, crime, and commercial centers among others.
