Statistics of Poverty Level in Haiti

Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world, with a high level of poverty and inequality.

  •  According to the World Bank, the poverty rate in Haiti was estimated at 59% in 2019. This means that more than half of the population in Haiti lives below the poverty line.
  • The extreme poverty rate, which is defined as living on less than $1.90 per day, was estimated at 24% in 2019.
  • Poverty is particularly widespread in rural areas, where the poverty rate is estimated to be around 65%.
  •  Unemployment and underemployment are major contributors to poverty in Haiti. The unemployment rate was estimated at 13.9% in 2019, while the underemployment rate is much higher.
  •  Access to basic services such as healthcare, education, and clean water is limited in Haiti. Around 2.5 million people in Haiti lack access to basic sanitation facilities, and more than 3 million people do not have access to safe drinking water.

These statistics highlight the urgent need for support and investment in Haiti to help alleviate poverty and improve living conditions for the population.
