In addition to descriptive statistics, adjusted multiple logistic regression (RLM) was used to compare the presence of sanitary infrastructure between indigenous and non-indigenous. The results point to lower percentages of sanitation services among black and indigenous households, particularly for sewage services in the North. Of the 96 comparisons carried out through RLM, in 78,1 % there was no significant difference between indigenous and non-indigenous, in 18,8 % indigenous households showed a significant statistical advantage and, in 3,1 % the indigenous were at a disadvantage. As conclusion, it is verified the permanence of the non-universalization of sanitation services. The results suggest a decrease in inequities related to basic sanitation between indigenous and non-indigenous people. </p> 2022-04-27T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Concentrated deconcentration and migration: a look from large metropolitan areas of Latin America 2022-05-06T17:03:39+00:00 Ana María Chávez Galindo José Marcos Pinto Da Cunha Jorge Barquero Daniel Macadar Wendy Molina Guillermo Olivera Jorge Rodríguez Jaime Sobrino <p>This article studies the hypothesis of “concentrated deconcentration”, which posits that the loss of demographic and economic gravitation of metropolitan areas is due to short-distance internal migratory movements, which can expand their hinterland and their functional relationships, maintaining or even reinforcing its importance within the national urban system. To verify this hypothesis, a methodological proposal is offered that operationalizes the concept of concentrated deconcentration by using two analytical dimensions: i) relative weight of the metropolitan area in the total population and in the urban population of the country, and ii) movements of recent internal migration between the metropolitan area and its near and far environments. This proposal applies to five metropolitan areas in Latin America. The results suggest that the change in the territorial distribution of the population is diverse, since in some cases there is no loss of the demographic weight of the big city, while in others this loss is reduced, or in others there are signs of deconcentration. concentrated.</p> 2022-02-27T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Survival analysis of indigenous Mexicans patients infected with COVID-19 at the beginning of the pandemic 2021-12-08T05:18:29+00:00 Jorge Enrique Horbath Corredor <p>In this paper we seek to establish the determinants of the differences in mortality functions between indigenous and non-indigenous patients in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. Processing the information of the Secretaría de Salud (Department of Health) of Mexico provided in May 22, 2020, survival analyses are performed contrasting patients infected with the virus who speak and do not speak indigenous languages by using Kaplan-Meier models and Cox proportional hazard models. The time from the onset of symptoms to death is taken as dependent variable, while the sociodemographic characteristics of the patients and territorial characteristics of the municipalities of residence are the covariables. The analysis shows that the infection rate is 43 % in indigenous patients and 35.4 % in non-indigenous patients, whereas the case fatality rate in infected indigenous patients is 20.4 % and 11 % in non-indigenous patients, thus confirming the hypothesis that indigenous patients have a lower probability of survival.</p> 2021-12-07T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
