Although many millions of people have exited poverty in recent decades, much of the reduction in poverty has benefited people living close to the poverty line rather than those at the very bottom of the income distribution. This book is not focused on poverty per se but rather is focused on looking particularly at those most deprived in society.

Because of the contraction of Ecuador's middle class, the division between the upper and lower classes has widened, allowing for little upward mobility among the nation's poor. Rural poverty in Ecuador: a qualitative assessment (English) Abstract.

Ecuador is an extremely poor country. Thirty-five percent of its population lived in poverty in and an additional seventeen percent were highly vulnerable to poverty. In addition, rural poverty is undoubtedly more severe than urban poverty. A complement to recent in-depth quantitative analyses of rural poverty in Ecuador, this is a report on the results of the Rural Qualitative Assessment of living conditions in rural communities in all three of Ecuador's diverse regions.

Formerly titled the OECD Social Expenditure Database (SOCX), this includes reliable and internationally comparable statistics on public and mandatory and voluntary private social expenditure at programme level, covering old age, survivors, and incapacity-related benefits; health, family, and active labor market programmes; and unemployment, housing, GINI, poverty, income inequality, and other.

Flower production and its effects on the rural poor in Ecuador Nine million people in the United States live in rural poverty. This large segment of the population has generally been overlooked even as considerable attention, and social conscience, is directed to the alleviation of urban poverty.

This timely, needed volume focuses on poor, rural people in poor, rural settings. Rural poverty is not confined to one section of the country or to one ethnic group.

What is now Ecuador formed part of the northern Inca Empire until the Spanish conquest in Quito became a seat of Spanish colonial government in and part of the Viceroyalty of New Granada in Population distribution: Ecuador's high poverty and income inequality most affect indigenous, mixed race, and rural populations.

Income inequality is measured by five indicators, such as the Gini coefficient and S90/S10, among others. Poverty rate: The poverty rate is the ratio of the number of people (in a given age group) whose income falls below the poverty line; taken as half the median household income of the total population.

Income poverty among indigenous and Montubian peoples is % and %, respectively, much higher than the index for whites (%). The study analyzed income inequality and poverty dynamics among rural farm households in Abia State, Nigeria.

Beyond the broad objective, the study sought specifically to estimate the income distribution and determine the poverty line, gap and incidence of the rural farm households. This working paper presents evidence on changes in income distribution and poverty in thirteen OECD countries over the two decades up to the first half of the s.

While country experience has been variable, income and poverty rose in most by:   Although Ecuador draws its wealth from lucrative petroleum exports, the wealth distribution is largely skewed between urban and rural areas.

The result of this disproportion is that close to four million Ecuadorians, or 35 percent of the population, live in poverty. Ecuador The Perils of Poverty Alexandra Martinez Flores' Esteban, a year-old farmworker, lives on the outskirts of Paja'n, a town named for the abundance of straw in the area.

The distribution of wealth is incredibly skewed; roughly 35 percent of the population (4 million Ecuadorians) living in poverty and about 17 percent more citizens are in danger of entering poverty.
