Poverty Profile of the People's Republic of China
Asian Development Bank | May 2004
Poverty Profile of the People’s Republic of China discusses the characteristics of poverty and the history of the fight against it in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) from 1978 to current times. Exciting developments have taken place in diagnosing, measuring and reducing poverty, but these have been largely the preserve of a narrow band of professionals – specialized public servants, aid practitioners, economists, statisticians and sociologists. This is a background reader aimed at spreading this knowledge to a wider audience with varied interests and occupational skills. The increased awareness of poverty and its dynamics that this Profile offers can serve as additional filter for decision makers whose actions add to the economic and social development and foster pro-poor growth in the PRC.
