This phenomenon refund more dissolved persons into the marriage market, increasing the risk of new unions. In this case, we analyze the second unions of women present in the Encuesta Nacional de la Dinámica Demográfica 2018. At least 11 % contracted one second union under the age of 30 years whose duration is 3 years longer when the first union was a marriage than when it was a cohabitation. The interval between first and second marriages is also greater than between two free unions. Among the greatest risks of contracting a second union are age of the woman at the first union and at dissolution, higher educational level, living in urban localities, not doing extra domestic work, and, above all, that her first union has been a free union.</p> Julieta Quilodrán Salgado Alí Miguel Arrieta-Arrieta ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2022-05-28 2022-05-28 16 e202128 e202128 10.31406/relap2022.v16.e202128 Basic sanitation infrastructure in urban Brazil indigenous population: 2016 to 2019 http://revistarelap.org/index.php/relap/article/view/316 <p>The presence of basic sanitation in urban areas of Brazil was analyzed, according to race, based on data from the Pesquisa Nacional por Amostra de Domicílios Contínua (PNADc), 2016-2019. In addition to descriptive statistics, adjusted multiple logistic regression (RLM) was used to compare the presence of sanitary infrastructure between indigenous and non-indigenous. The results point to lower percentages of sanitation services among black and indigenous households, particularly for sewage services in the North. Of the 96 comparisons carried out through RLM, in 78,1 % there was no significant difference between indigenous and non-indigenous, in 18,8 % indigenous households showed a significant statistical advantage and, in 3,1 % the indigenous were at a disadvantage. As conclusion, it is verified the permanence of the non-universalization of sanitation services. The results suggest a decrease in inequities related to basic sanitation between indigenous and non-indigenous people. </p> Barbara Coelho Barbosa da Cunha Ludimila Raupp ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2022-04-27 2022-04-27 16 e202120 e202120 10.31406/relap2022.v16.e202120 Concentrated deconcentration and migration: a look from large metropolitan areas of Latin America http://revistarelap.org/index.php/relap/article/view/314 <p>This article studies the hypothesis of “concentrated deconcentration”, which posits that the loss of demographic and economic gravitation of metropolitan areas is due to short-distance internal migratory movements, which can expand their hinterland and their functional relationships, maintaining or even reinforcing its importance within the national urban system. To verify this hypothesis, a methodological proposal is offered that operationalizes the concept of concentrated deconcentration by using two analytical dimensions: i) relative weight of the metropolitan area in the total population and in the urban population of the country, and ii) movements of recent internal migration between the metropolitan area and its near and far environments. This proposal applies to five metropolitan areas in Latin America. The results suggest that the change in the territorial distribution of the population is diverse, since in some cases there is no loss of the demographic weight of the big city, while in others this loss is reduced, or in others there are signs of deconcentration. concentrated.</p> Ana María Chávez Galindo José Marcos Pinto Da Cunha Jorge Barquero Daniel Macadar Wendy Molina Guillermo Olivera Jorge Rodríguez Jaime Sobrino ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2022-02-27 2022-02-27 16 e202108 e202108 10.31406/relap2022.v16.e202108
