Of every 100 Mexicans born poor, 74 will die in poverty


According to the Centro de Estudios Espinosa Yglesias in its report on Social Mobility 2019, the situation facing progress is not at all promising.

According to the Centro de Estudios Espinosa Yglesias (CEEY) in its report on Social Mobility 2019, the situation is not very promising: in Mexico, 74 out of every 100 people born in poverty will die in that situation.

And it is in the southeast of the country where the situation is further intensified with 86 out of every hundred people who were born in those homes will never be able to overcome this condition.

The ESRU survey of Social Mobility in Mexico (ESRU-EMOVI) is the one that identifies the problem and emphasizes that the birth region also affects the lack of mobility.

The situation is the reverse in the north of the country, where 46 Mexicans out of every 100 come out of poverty, or three times more than those born in the south.

The report, which aims to identify the weight of the conditions of origin of people in their development options, was based on the last quarter of 2017 and identifies the way in which access to opportunities determines social mobility in Mexico.

On the rise

And the outlook is doomsday: the limited social mobility is increasing, since in the previous report there were 70 people on the national average who were born and died in poverty, information that corresponds to the 2013 survey based on 2011 data, reported center.

And to reflect the existing inequality, women have more difficulties for social mobility, explained the consultant Monica Orozco: even with similar conditions of origin, a smaller proportion of women, which is born in the lowest part of the social ladder, It has the possibility of overcoming poverty.

And because the crisis affects everyone, we must add the fact that women born at the top of the social ladder face a greater risk of falling, so competitiveness is a word to which they should be well acquainted.

Of 82 percent of men participate in the labor market, among women that percentage is 43 percent, and down to 36 percent when they have children under 6 years.

Finally, the executive director of the CEEY, Roberto Vélez, said that, “without equal opportunities, no matter how great the efforts of those born in situations of greater disadvantage, their chances of improvement will be limited. Economic growth and public actions of education, health, and social protection are required ».
