Modeling determinants of poverty in Mauritania

Modeling determinants of poverty in Mauritania

World Development Oxford 24(6): 1015-1031

A brief descriptive characterization of poverty in Mauritania is presented as revealed by household survey data for 1990, and regression analysis is used to study the determinants of living standards and poverty. The latter is conducted at the level of broadly defined socioeconomic groups, using an econometric technique which also models the selection of households into socioeconomic groups.
