 Vallarta has a high human development index: IIEG

The municipality of Puerto Vallarta is among the top 10 municipalities with the “best human development index” in the State of Jalisco, according to the Municipal Human Development Report 2010-2020 of the Institute of Statistical and Geographic Information (IIEG).

The study analyzes three essential dimensions for human well-being: education, health and disposable income.

At the state level, health is measured by life expectancy at birth, which provides an approximation of longevity, reflecting people’s ability to enjoy good health and adequate levels of nutritious and quality food.

With the increase in temperatures now approaching 80 degrees for highs in La Paz, local officials are out inspecting traditional beach food stalls to make sure the food is kept at proper temperatures to be safe for tourists.

The State Commission for the Protection Against Sanitary Risks announced recently that they will be working on seasonal inspections of the food stalls in La Paz to make sure business owners are properly regulating the temperature of the food.

Due to the increase in fish and shellfish eaten before Easter, the priority is those items. This is especially the case because they have been known to cause food-borne diseases from improper temperature management. Those that sell fresh fish are also part of these inspections.
