Gender and poverty: how we can be misled by the unitary model of household resources – the case of Tajikistan. Southampton, UK, Southampton Statistical Sciences Research Institute, 21pp.
(S3RI Applications and Policy Working Papers, A04/21).
Using the 2003 Tajikistan Living Standard Survey this paper looks at the relationship between gender and poverty and show how, by modifying the equal sharing assumption of the household resources, we can easily be misled by the poverty and gender relationship. This paper also shows how those gender analyses which use the female headed household and male headed household dichotomy in Tajikistan obscure the gender analysis of poverty due to the heterogeneity of female headed household types.
