Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to Survey of poverty line and vulnerability of the rural households in the Province of Southern Khorasan. The study sample included the data of the income of rural households in the Province of Southern Khorasan which was collected by the Statistics Centre of Iran from 2010 to 2012. Poverty line was estimated based on the costs of a household and the recommended model by the Institute of Nutrition, and the households were divided into poor and non-poor households. The indicators of vulnerability namely the proportion of the vulnerable people, vulnerability gap, and intensity of vulnerability were estimated also. Finally, using statistics, the factors determining poverty and the vulnerability of the sample of the study were examined. The results demonstrated that poverty line and indicators of vulnerability in the studied area were of a larger scale in 2011. And Gender, literacy, employment of the head of the household were the most determining factors.
