Amid controversy over INDEC’s failure to release poverty and indigence figures as expected this week, the cabinet chief ratified the government’s position that “all indicators clearly determine that social conditions have improved in a substantial way in Argentina.”

In his daily message to the press at the government house, Jorge Capitanich questioned the opposition for “seeking to distort the clear and blunt effects” of the social inclusion policies carried out by the Kirchnerite administration over the past decade. The head of ministers affirmed "there has been a drastic reduction of poverty and indigence over the past years.”

On Wednesday, the National Statistics and Census Institute (INDEC) postponed the release of figures from the Household Survey, which includes key data regarding poverty and indigence, prompting criticism from the opposition.

A day after, the chief of the Cristina Fernández de Kirchner administration told reporters the INDEC had failed to provide the rates due to “methodological” problems, following the modification of government’s statistics measurement methods as demanded by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
