(APA)–Ethiopia is to conduct a survey on its level of poverty with an outlay of 40 million birr ($2 million) as of next week, the country’s Central Statistics Agency announced on Saturday. The Agency on Saturday said that 475 well trained experts will be assigned in all nine states of the country in the coming six weeks to conduct extensive survey on the level of poverty in the country.

The poverty head count in Ethiopia, measured by the national poverty line, fell from 38.7 percent in 2005 to 29.67 percent in 2011, measured with the international poverty line ($1.25 per day), according to World Bank’s recent report.

The country conducts the survey on status of poverty every five years. Revenue, expense and expenditure in the family level will be assessed in all parts of the country, survey coordinator with the Agency Zenasellasie Seyoum said

The coordinator noted that the socio-economic sectors, the status of poverty reduction and food security will be thoroughly reviewed.

Efforts are being exerted to guarantee credibility of the survey using modern technologies and systems, surveyors noted.

General Director of Ethiopian Statistics Agency Biratu Yigezu said that the survey would be conducted as per global standards.
