"the receipt of internal remittances reduces the poverty headcount of households by 11.14% and poverty gap by 9.7% while the receipt of international remittances reduces poverty headcount, poverty gap and squared poverty gap by almost 100%"
From a new working paper by Nnaemeka Chukwuone, Ebele Amaechina, Benjamin Okpukpara, Evelyn Iyoko and Sunday E. Enebeli-Uzor (via the Partnership for Economic Policy).
