Abstract

This paper analyzes the trend in, and determinants of poverty in Mali from 2001 and 2006. Thanks to strong economic growth, poverty has been reduced. Yet due to demographic growth, the number of the poor is still increasing. Households working in agriculture, especially in the cotton producing area of Sikasso, suffer from higher rates of poverty. Other household characteristics also affect consumption levels and thereby poverty.
