Colombia in motion 2010 – 2013

The changes in the life of households observed through the Colombian Longitudinal Survey (ELCA) by Universidad de los Andes.


In this book, we present the most important results of ELCA’s second wave applied in 2013. We show the dynamics that experience the households in income, labor market, consumption, shocks and its response mechanisms, changes in education, health, etc. Also, we show the main results of ELCA’s new modules which are innovative: politics and youths. With this book, we seek to provide information that allows a better design and evaluation of public policies, and are useful to analyze the impact of those politics on households’ well-being.
