Publication: FYR of Macedonia : Poverty Assessment for 2002-2003
This report provides a broad assessment of the status of living standards in FYR Macedonia during the period 2002 - 2003. This work complements the body of analysis undertaken by the Government, independent researchers, and donors on economic developments in FYR Macedonia. Instead of analyzing the successes or failures of policies in engendering growth, the report focuses its attention on examining living conditions as they stand today. Since economic growth is not an end in itself but rather a means to achieving sustained improvements in living conditions of all citizens, how good or bad outcomes are ultimately reflect the success or failure of government policies. In order to reach its ultimate objective, the report specifically sets out to do the following: (i) provide a broad perspective on how living conditions in FYR Macedonia compares to other countries in the region; (ii) determine the extent of poverty among FYR Macedonia's population and outline the profile of the poor; and (iii) analyze the linkage between growth and changes in poverty overtime.
