An Analysis of Household Income and Expenditure in Tanzania

“Chapter 2 of PHDR 2009 examined national progress in poverty reduction by comparing
findings from the latest Household Budget Survey conducted in 2007 with the previous HBS in 2000/01. The analysis looked at household well-being from several different perspectives: household consumption levels, household expenditure patterns, asset ownership, and household occupation and place of residence. This brief, the fourth in the series on PHDR 2009, summarises the principal findings of the analysis and assesses progress towards national poverty
reduction targets.”
