IBGE releases Coefficient of Regional Imbalance 2016
The IBGE releases the Coefficients of Regional Imbalance - CRIs related to 2016 for the North, Northeast and Central-West Regions, based on information from the Continuous National Household Sample Survey - Continuous PNAD1.
This release complies with Decree no. 9,291, of February 21, 2018, published in the Official Gazette of February 22, 2018, which establishes how CRIs are computed and updated, according to article 1-D of Law no. 10,177, of January 12, 2001.
Shown in the table below, the CRI of each Region was calculated as the ratio between the per capita household income - PCHI of the Region and that of Brazil, according to article 1, paragraph 1, of the Decree above.
Earnings from labor and other sources are taken into account in this computation. Every resident is taken into account in the computation, including those classified as pensioners, domestic workers and their relatives. The values were obtained from gross earnings from labor and other sources, effectively earned in the reference month of the survey, accruing the information from the first interviews in the first, second, third and fourth quarters that comprise 2016, as the result for this reference year.
