Abstract (EN)This brief highlights the importance of using the spatial temporal approach to study inequality and poverty in relation to incidences of violence across and within different areas to increase the effectiveness of antipoverty efforts, such as those in regional planning and as local policies interventions. It presents the results of a research that depict the extent to which poverty and violence are concentrated in Mexico. The results proved evident that poverty is only significant over space and not variant over time, exemplifying that poverty traps are caused due to geographic areas with high incidence of poverty. The paper further analyses how the spatial distribution of poverty can depict significant concentration areas of high genre-based violence levels across the country. As well as, the research views the role of poverty traps and other contextual factors explaining genre-based violence in Mexico. The overall trend renders that poorer municipalities, located far from urban areas, run a higher risk of female homicide.
