The Dynamics of Poverty in Rural Bangladesh: Determinants of Poverty Reduction

This brief summarizes findings of part two of a three-part quantitative and qualitative research study into the dynamics of poverty, which was collaboratively undertaken by researchers of the Chronic Poverty Research Centre, the International Food Policy Research Institute, and Data Analysis and Technical Assistance, Ltd. Part two of the study involved a multi-topic resurvey of 1,787 core households in 102 villages in rural Bangladesh in late 2006 and early 2007. The purpose of the resurvey was to understand the factors that drive and perpetuate chronic poverty in rural Bangladesh, together with why people and households move into and out of poverty.
