Expect Further Decline in Poverty Rate – PIOJ

first_img The decline, reported in the Statistical Institute of Jamaica’s (STATIN) Jamaica Survey of Living Conditions, represents a 19 per cent drop in the incidence of poverty, the largest annual reduction in 10 years.    “So, it’s more than just people working; you are looking at conditions that lead to persistent poverty and to empower, in terms of the households, to lift them out of poverty… hence the need for social protection and economic empowerment in a more targeted way,” he explained. Story Highlights STATIN’s Labour Force Survey for January 2018 shows that the number of persons employed increased by 22,600 to 1,206,600. This is despite a decrease in the labour force by 21,200 to 1,335,100 persons.

This is what we want to continue to see happening, where we build a resilient environment for business as well as a climate-resilient environment. So for us, it (prospect of further poverty reduction) is very encouraging,” he added.Dr. Henry was speaking at the PIOJ’s quarterly media briefing at the Institute’s head office in New Kingston on May 22.STATIN’s Labour Force Survey for January 2018 shows that the number of persons employed increased by 22,600 to 1,206,600.
