Abstract (Translated): 
The following study starts by understanding poverty as a multi-dimensional phenomenom, from which a comparison of poverty measurement between unidimensional and multi-dimensional methods is made. The best way of operating a multiplicity of dimensions is addressed; besides we also take into account the methodological differentiation of spaces by means of a second round of identification of surrounding poverty. The dimensions analyzed are: education, health, life quality, inequality, discrimination and social participation. The results show changes on the bolivian poverty profile against those calculated by only the per capita income, thus, showing a face of poverty that has never been seen or considered before.
