Ce papier présente un profil de base et une analyse des corrélats de la pauvreté en République Centrafricaine à partir des données de l’enquête centrafricaine pour le suivi-évaluation du bien-être réalisée en 2008 par l’Institut Centrafricain des Statistiques et des Etudes Economiques et sociales. Les estimations sont obtenues suivant l’approche du coût des besoins de base des ménages. La pauvreté affecte près des deux tiers de la population, particulièrement en milieu rural. Parmi les sous-groupes les plus touchés on peut noter les agriculteurs et les ménages dont le chef a un faible niveau d’instruction, ainsi que les ménages dont la taille est élevée. Les régions les moins touchées sont celles de la capitale Bangui et de l’Equateur. This paper presents a basic profile and analysis of the correlates of poverty in the Central African Republic using data from the Central African survey for the monitoring and evaluation of well-being conducted in 2008 by the Central African Institute of Statistics and Economic and Social Studies. The estimates of poverty are obtained following the cost of basic needs methodology. Poverty affects almost two thirds of the population, particularly in rural areas. Among the most affected subgroups are farmers and households whose head has a low level of education, and household with many members. The regions least affected are those of the capital Bangui and Ecuador.
