Profil et perceptions de la pauvreté en République du Congo en 2005


  • Prospere Backiny-Yetna
  • Quentin Wodon


Ce papier présente le profil et les déterminants ou corrélats de la pauvreté au Congo grâce aux données de la première enquête congolaise auprès des ménages réalisée en 2005. Il apparaît que malgré des potentialités et des ressources importantes, la pauvreté affecte encore plus de la moitié de la population notamment en milieu semi-urbain et en milieu rural. Les sous-groupes les plus touchées sont les paysans et les ménages dont le chef a un faible niveau d’instruction. L’étude comprend aussi une analyse des perceptions de la pauvreté des ménages et de leurs priorités. Des simulations simples sont réalisées pour suggérer comment une croissance plus rapide permettrait éventuellement de réduire la pauvreté dans le futur. Enfin, l’étude comprend une analyse des déterminants ou corrélats de la pauvreté.
