How can we measure inequality in early childhood?


On October 2-3, 2013, Equity for Children Latin America (Equidad para la Infancia)  participated in a workshop in Colombia designed around the implementation of indicators of quality of life measurements in early childhood through the framework presented by Bogotá Cómo Vamos, which is a citizen monitoring program that assesses changes in the quality of city life through technical indicators and perception.

The Latin America team worked together with Fundación Corona in the workshop entitled, “How can we measure inequality in early childhood?” which raised an analysis of methodologies for calculating indicators that measure inequality experienced in early childhood years.

The proposals developed in the workshop were developed as part of the program “Cómo Vamos,” which originates in Bogotá, Colombia, and is currently applied locally in 82 cities throughout Latin America.

The workshop was hosted by Equity for Children Executive Director Alberto Minujín, and attended by delegates from Corona Foundation, Bogotá Cómo Vamos, Estrategia de Cero a 5iempre, Corporación Somos Más, Instituto Colombiano de Bienestar Familiar ICBF, Ministerio de Educación Nacional, Ministerio de Salud, Agencia Nacional para la Superación de la Pobreza Extrema ANSPE, Departamento Nacional de Planeación, Departamento Administrativo Nacional de Estadísticas DANE, Ministerio de Cultura y Escuela de Gobierno de la Universidad de los Andes.
