This article explores and examines the social policies implemented in Ecuador, aiming to determine how social programs of education, health and housing impact on social development programs and beneficiary population. For analysis, an econometric model of multiple linear regression is applied, which allows to analyze and demonstrate the relationship between studied variables, in turn, is accompanied by a survey of 146 beneficiaries in communities receiving the programs.
