Abstract: The study shows the evolution of poverty in Romania in 1990-2017, within the European context, analysing statistics and local and international information. After the brief presentation of the basic concepts used to analyse the phenomenon, the two main stages of its dynamics in Romania are presented: 1990-2000 – when the scale of poverty increased continuously, and 2000-2017 – when the phenomenon gradually decreased, and became less intense, at least in terms of the severe and absolute poverty. Such performance is noteworthy, knowing that over the past century, much of the Romanian population could not afford a consumption of goods and services above the limits of the subsistence basket.
