Sociómetro-BID is a diverse dataset of social indicators designed to capture social conditions in Latin America and the Caribbean. The indicators are derived from national household survey data, covering 21 countries from 1990 to 2009. While the Sociómetro includes traditional global indicators including the Millennium Development Goals, the database also includes tailor-made indicators in five areas: Demographics, Education, Labor Market, Housing, and Income, to better capture conditions in LAC.
Moreover, unlike traditional aggregate indicators, the Sociómetro indicators are disaggregated by ethnicity and race (when available) in addition to being disaggregated by gender, geographic residence, education, and income quintile. The user can tailor his or her query through the user-friendly web application.
