LAC Equity Lab: Economic Growth

Economic growth is essential to reducing poverty and improving the lives of the world's poorest. Latin America and the Caribbean experienced high economic growth during the 2000s, although growth decreased after the 2008 financial crisis. The region's growth has slowed further in recent years contributing to slower progress in shared prosperity and poverty reduction.

The Economic Growth section of the LAC Equity Lab includes the following data:


Growth Incidence Curve (GIC)

The Growth Incidence Curve (GIC) as annualized income growth or as total income growth across the distribution between any two years, for the LAC region as a whole, or by country.


GIC by Income Source

Average per capita income growth for labor and non-labor income by decile, for the LAC region as a whole, or by country.
