Transient and chronic poverty in turbulent times: Argentina 1995-2002

Guillermo Cruces and Quentin Wodon

Economics Bulletin, 2003, vol. 9, issue 3, 1-12

Abstract: Using panel data, poverty in Argentina is decomposed into transient and chronic components. Overall poverty has increased in large part due to higher chronic poverty. While many household characteristics have similar impacts on both chronic and transient poverty, there are differences. Households with self-employed workers and business owners have higher levels of transient but not chronic poverty. The reverse is observed for households with public sector workers.
