Abstract

Partant des limites des instruments classiques dans la mesure de la pauvreté, l'étude introduit le concept de noyau dur pour contourner le problème d'inclusion-exclusion factice, en vue d'un meilleur ciblage des pauvres au Sénégal. Elle s'appuie sur une combinaison d'indicateurs de pauvreté monétaire avec ceux de patrimoine et de privation relative. L'analyse du noyau dur fait ressortir que deux ménages sur 11 manquent de moyens pour faire face à leurs besoins immédiats et éprouvent des difficultés à accéder à des conditions de vie adéquates. Pire, ces ménages n'ont aucune perspective de sortir de la précarité en raison de la faiblesse de leur capital tant humain que physique. Par ailleurs, contrairement aux travaux antérieurs, l'étude montre une pauvreté sévit plus importante dans les ménages dirigés par des femmes (notamment les divorcées et veuves) ou par des personnes de faible qualification professionnelle.
