La pauvreté au Québec et au Canada

Listed author(s):
  • Sami Bibi
  • Jean-Yves Duclos

Ce papier estime l'évolution de la pauvreté au Québec et au Canada de 1996 à 2005 ainsi que les effets des principaux impôts et transferts aux particuliers sur l'allégement de la pauvreté. Cette analyse valide et complète les évaluations de certains organismes officiels tels que Statistique Canada, l'Institut de la Statistique du Québec et le Ministère de l'Emploi et de la Solidarité Sociale. Un problème important auquel fait face toute analyse comparative de la pauvreté est le choix du seuil et de la mesure de pauvreté. Comme il est généralement arbitraire de privilégier un choix plutôt qu'un autre, des tests de robustesse sont effectués. Ces tests montrent que le classement des provinces canadiennes en termes de pauvreté absolue et relative est souvent sensible au choix du seuil et de la mesure de pauvreté.
