Poverty and inequality are very important problems since they imply the diagnosis of the population's living standards. The objective of the article is to evaluate the existing inequality in rural and urban areas in Mexico for the period 2000-2018 using the methodology of the Gini index of urban and rural income with data from the ENIGH. Among the limitations is the data availability since the Population Censuses have been modified, which generates complications when making comparisons of the same variable over time. The study shows that in Mexico there has been a reduction, albeit in a limited way, of inequalities in urban and rural areas in recent years, although the levels remain high.
