Jharkhand : poverty, growth and inequality (English)

This brief talks about poverty, growth and inequality in Jharkhand, India. Jharkhand is the fourteenth most populous state in India and home to 33 million people, 13 million of who are poor. There was rapid poverty reduction in the state between 1994 and 2005. Thereafter, the state has lagged behind other Low Income States in reducing poverty. Poverty is among the highest in the country today, particularly in the state’s southern and eastern districts. Growth, which is driven mainly by industry, is slow and volatile. Consumption inequality in the state increased marginally after 2005, but remains lower than in most other states.
