Abstract: The evolution of Latin America’s middle class over the last decade was analysed in a companion brief: The Evolution of the Middle Class in Latin America. In that document, the middle class was identified using income thresholds, a common practice in the economic literature. Beyond that traditional economic approach, there are several economic and/or sociological studies that take a different approach, using information about other socio-economic characteristics to identify the middle class: demographic, housing and infrastructure, education, occupation, and other indicators.
