Poverty, Growth and Inequality in Nigeria: A Case Study
AbstractThe study found evidence of worsening inequality and poverty in spite of economic growth. It was found also that male-headed households seem to have fared worse, and that poverty is more pronounced in rural areas and in the northen regions (zones). The poor policy stance during the period is found to have contributed in increased poverty.
