Three aspects of rural poverty in Bangladesh have been examined in this paper: the trend of poverty over the decade of the 2000s, the evolving pattern of poverty among different population groups over the same decade, and identification of the major determinants of poverty in rural Bangladesh. For the first two exercises, data from the Household Income and Expenditure Survey (HIES) 2000 of the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) were compared with data from a large-scale survey of rural poverty carried out in 2010 by the Institute of Microfinance (InM) in Dhaka. The third exercise was based solely on the 2010 survey.
