POVERTY, INEQUALITY AND ECONOMIC GROWTH IN ALGERIA: AN ARDL APPROACH

Hicham Ayad ()

Journal of Social and Economic Statistics, 2016, vol. 5, issue 1, 1-20

Abstract: This analytical review explores the links between poverty, inequality and growth in Algeria for the period 1970-2013, we use in this paper an ARDL approach to investigate the relationships between poverty as measured by the consumption per capita, inequality measured as Thail index and growth measured as GDP per capita, using data from different sources, the study tries to answer the following questions: Whether growth, poverty and inequality are co-integrated? How are the long-run and short-run relations between the three variables? The results suggest that poverty, inequality and growth are co-integrated, and we found that the relation between poverty and growth is negative; and the relation between poverty and inequality is positive either in short-run or in long-run terms.
