Poverty and Remittances in Lesotho
This study estimates the extent and structure of poverty in Lesotho, based on a recent Household Budget Survey, using additive decomposable poverty indices. A special feature of Lesotho is that a high proportion of the male labour force is employed in the Republic of South Africa. Household members left behind, and the economy as a whole, are very dependent on miners' remittances. As part of our analysis, we simulate the effects on the extent and structure of poverty of the complete termination of these remittances. Copyright 1993 by Oxford University Press.
