Abstract

This article investigates the relationships among economic growth, income distribution and poverty in Brazil during the period from 2001 to 2005. Those relationships are analyzed starting from the selection of three models: one that relates the variations in the poverty indicators and the main components that answer for this variation - decomposition model;another that simulates the effects of the variation of the income and the concentration indicators on the poverty level - model of elasticity; and finally a model that associates the relationships between concentration of income and economic growth in the higher stratum of income.
