In this paper, we assess the common good dynamics of the Mexican municipality of San Andre´s Cholula in the State of Puebla, using the common good matrix, developed by the Institute for the Promotion of the Common Good (IPBC). The metric captures the collective life and the social dynamics of a population at the municipal level, and sheds light on the formal and informal institutional framework that constitutes people’s lives. Through the application of 600 surveys in this municipality, we assess collective life of the locality on five dimensions. We show that justice and governance pose the greatest challenges to the municipality and we note, second, important disparities in the structure of social life between different localities within the municipality.
