Abstract

ABSTRACT: Haïti, classée 153e/177, appartient au groupe des pays les plus sous-développés au monde (PNUD 2005). Ainsi, ce pays est parmi ceux appelés à bénéficier des programmes de réduction de la pauvreté dans le cadre des « Objectifs du millénaire pour le développement ». A cet effet, chaque pays dont Haïti, doit rédiger son « Document stratégique de réduction de la pauvreté ». Pourtant, les études sur la pauvreté en Haïti sont encore très peu nombreuses et l’aspect dynamique du phénomène reste encore à explorer. Ce papier vise à étudier la dynamique de la pauvreté entre 1986/1987 et 1999/2000 et mettre en évidence les déterminants de la pauvreté observée. Pour y parvenir, nous avons utilisé les données de deux enquêtes ménages, la classe d’indices décomposables FGT et les tests de dominance stochastique afin de tester la robustesse des changements de pauvreté dans le temps. Les résultats montrent une baisse importante de la pauvreté tant au niveau national que sur le plan sectoriel. Concernant les déterminants de la pauvreté, les résultats révèlent que le milieu de résidence et l’appartenance à une catégorie socioprofessionnelle constituent les deux principaux facteurs influençant la pauvreté.
