Resumen

En este trabajo presentamos un análisis crítico de algunas de las técnicas más aplicadas en la práctica para obtener medidas sintéticas a partir de un sistema de subindicadores previo. En el estudio de cada metodología identificamos las ventajas e inconvenientes asociadas a cada una de ellas, prestando especial atención a cuestiones tales como la reducción de la subjetividad asociada al indicador sintético, la facilidad de interpretación de los resultados, la complejidad operacional, etc. Así, ofrecemos un documento que puede ser utilizado por parte de los analistas para elegir aquella técnica que más se adecue al estudio que pretendan realizar.

This paper presents a critical analysis of some of the techniques which are applied in practice to obtain composite indicators from a previous sub-indicator system. In studying each methodology, we identify the advantages and dis-advantages associated with them, paying particular attention to issues such as reducing the subjectivity associated with synthetic indicator, the ease of interpretation of results, operational complexity, etc. Therefore, we offer a document that can be used by analysts to choose the methodology that best suits their studies.
