    Summary:  

    Poverty continues to decline in Lao People’s Democratic Republic (PDR). Recent estimates from the Laos Expenditure and Consumption Survey (LECS 5) show that the proportion of poor people - those whose consumption is less than the national poverty line, declined by 4.3 percentage points from 27.56 percent in 2007/8 to 23.24 percent in 2012/13. As Figure 1 shows, the same trend is observed when you consider the proportion of people living on less than 1.25 PPP dollars a day. These estimates imply that poverty in Lao PDR halved from 46 percent in 1992/93 when the first LECS survey was conducted.
