Once Poor Always Poor : Exploring Poverty Dynamics in Ethiopia (English)

Many studies assessing poverty reduction use repeated cross-sectional data to track trends over time at the national level. However, panel data allows us to track individuals over time, leading to a better understanding of poverty dynamics. Using two waves of panel data from the Ethiopia Socioeconomic Survey (ESS), the authors explore in this brief the dynamics of well-being in rural and small-town Ethiopia by assessing changes in poverty status based on consumption expenditures in 2012 and 2014.
