Abstract

Après une longue période de récession économique sur la période 1987-1994, le Cameroun a commencé à émerger de cette situation du fait notamment de la dévaluation du FCFA. Deux enquêtes auprès des ménages réalisées en 1996 et 2001 montrent que l’incidence de la pauvreté a reculé de plus de 13 points, passant de plus de 53,3% à 40,2%. Malgré cette performance remarquable, les populations continuent de penser dans leur majorité que la dégradation de la situation perdure. Ce papier procède à l’investigation des raisons de ce paradoxe. Les principaux résultats tendent à montrer que la vulnérabilité, les aspirations à un niveau de vie meilleur et l’insatisfaction vis-à-vis des services publics pourraient être parmi les causes de ce sentiment négatif.
