Project shows inequalities in access to opportunities in the cities

A study conducted by ITDP Brazil and IPEA takes into consideration criteria of race and income to show that the options of work, health and leisure are concentrated



A pioneering study in Brazil, on the inequality of access and opportunities that Brazilians have to arrive at the desired destination, was launched by ITDP Brazil and Ipea (Institute of Applied Economic Research). The Access to Opportunities Project maps the conditions of urban accessibility in the most populous cities of the country in 2019, with an emphasis on how many health facilities, job opportunities and education units the population can access in 15, 30, 45, 60 and 120 minutes. The first diagnoses, for the active modes (walking or cycling), showed a concentration of opportunities and connectivity between the transport modes in the urban centers, while the more peripheral regions had lower levels of development, activities and public transport options. The categories of income and color/race reinforced the inequalities. More details on the platform.
