抄録: This paper investigates poverty trends in Nepal using three sets of national survey data. It covers the period 1976/77 - 1996/97, divided between 1976/77 - 1984/85 and 1984/85 - 1996/97. We have made a decomposition analysis of poverty in terms of the Foster-Greer-Thorbecke indices. Using a common poverty line to cover all the income distribution data available from the national surveys, we have reached the firm conclusion that poverty declined in Nepal during 1976/77 - 1984/85 but increased during 1984/85 - 1996/97. Tracing the changes in labour productivity for the same periods, we found that the level of poverty correlated highly with changes in labour productivity, especially in the agricultural sectors.
