Abstract

This paper looks at the relationship between growth and the poorest based on a panel data set – where the same household is surveyed at more than one point in time.

It examines the extent to which the poorest are able to participate in growth using a panel data set of more than 1000 households covering the 1990s, and looking at income and non-income measures of wellbeing. In brief the results suggest considerable mobility over time in terms of income measures of wellbeing, but somewhat less in terms of the non-income measures considered here.
