Abstract

A partir d'un indicateur composite de pauvreté, l'analyse du niveau et de l'évolution de la pauvreté multidimensionnelle au Togo entre 1988 et 1998 a fait ressortir une tendance à la baisse aux seuils relatif et absolu considérés. Sur les deux périodes étudiées, la pauvreté non monétaire se révèle très fortement accentuée auprès des ménages ruraux et paraît être de grande ampleur dans la région des Savanes. Considérant la distribtion de l'indicateur composite de niveau de vie, il ressort que la pauvreté est inégalement répartie sur l'ensemble du territoire avec une plus forte intensité dans les zones rurales et dans la région des Savanes.
