This data set includes the monthly basic food basket (CBT) and the monthly total basic basket (CBA) for Argentina published by INDEC. The basic food basket is the set of foods and beverages that satisfy nutritional, kilocalorie, and protein requirements, whose composition reflects the consumption habits of the reference population. The total basic basket (CBT) extends the CBA, when considering non-food goods and services, such as clothing, transportation, education, health, housing, etc. The value of the CBA is used in Argentina as a reference to establish the indigence line and the CBT is used as a reference to establish the poverty line.
