STATEMENT ON THE 2012 FULL-YEAR POVERTY STATISTICS 12/9/2013
As the NSCB reported, poverty incidence slightly declined in 2012 to 25.2 percent of population from 26.3% percent and to 19.7 % from 20.5 percent among families in 2009. This is still a slow decline, but we will take it as indication of accomplishment, or more accurately, a work in progress, in the fight against poverty. More importantly, we will take in all of the lessons derived from this recent profile and fine-tune our strategies accordingly.
