Abstract

Poverty is one of the most familiar and enduring conditions known to humanity. Some researchers view it as a reaction to the stress of being poor, whereas others perceive it as a process of adapting to the condition of poverty. In this paper, we review the regional Poverty and Inequality disparities in Ghana. We concluded that, the annual cash income concept is a poor indicator of the lifetime resources and hence, consumption may not fully reflect a family’s true well-being.
