Abstract

This study analyzes household expenditure polarization in Democratic Republic of Congo. By using Gini index, Theil index and Atkinson index for the inequality and the indices of Foster and Wolfson (FW) and Duclos, Esteban and Ray (DER) for the polarization, we measure these two concepts by gathering individuals according to residence surroundings (urban and rural ; town, city and village) and provinces. The results of this study confirm that the inequality and polarization exist in Democratic Republic of Congo, what inspires that the social tension risk and the inequality are found in the two zones (urban and rural) but it is highest in urban zones that rural.
