Development and poverty in Romania
The paper is concerned with poverty in Romania during a period of economic growth (2000-2008). The poverty incidence and profile before financial and economic crisis and the evolution of poverty in the context of economic growth and of a strong increase of households income have been studied, aiming to identify who is the most vulnerable at poverty risk and to find out if the growth was pro-poor or didn’t. A comparison with the others EU Member States offers some reference points for the evaluation of the actual dimensions of poverty.
