Was Economic Growth Pro-Poor? Evidence from Egypt, Jordan, and Palestine

Topic: I3. Welfare, Well-Being, and Poverty O1. Economic Development


Status:
completed Project


This project utilizes harmonized Household Income and Expenditure Surveys datasets developed by ERF to look at the pro-poorness of economic growth in Egypt, Jordan, and Palestine. The availability of multiple cross section data for each country provides the opportunity to compare the results both across countries as well as over time. The goals are to measure the extent to which economic growth in these countries has favored the poor and to see its trend over time in each country.
