The Province of Tucuman is the smallest in Argentina and the most densely populated. It has 1,767,500 and records 899,154 people living in poverty. Almost half (49.6%) of young people between 15 and 29 years of age are in a situation of poverty, which distances them from the right to education, training and employability.
