Even as cash transfer programs and remittances have played an important role in poverty reduction in the LAC region, the main source of income for most families is still from employment. As a result, growth in labor income has driven the region's poverty reduction.
Below, the GIC has been decomposed to show growth by income source between two points in time. This dashboard shows average per capita income growth from labor and non-labor income by decile. The income growth is also presented for two different periods of time side-by-side to allow a quick visual comparison of the two periods. The data can be visualized for the LAC region as a whole, or by country for those years in which the country has available data and are comparables.
