Abstract

FIGUEIREDO, Argelina Cheibub; TORRES, Haroldo da Gama  and  BICHIR, Renata Mirandola. A conjuntura social brasileira revisitada. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2006, n.75, pp. 173-183. ISSN 0101-3300.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-33002006000200012.

This article seeks to identify Brazilian State’s efficiency in supplying "basical needs" for the poor population. Taking as a guideline two surveys concerning the access to public services and social policies of the 40% poorest homes in the city of São Paulo, it suggests that State action remains crucial and that the general social condition of the poor has not improved significantly since the 1980’s.

Keywords : poverty; public services; social policies; State.
