Overview

In cross-country poverty studies, Denmark, like the other Nordic countries, stands out with low rates of poverty incidence and duration. This study paper shows that this is the net outcome of very different poverty profiles between natives and immigrants. It describes and analyzes the annual incidence of poverty during 1984-2007, separately for natives and for immigrants from Western and non-Western countries. It also describes entry and exit rates relative to poverty and the persistence of poverty for these population groups. Finally, the paper calculates a set of indicators of income mobility and inequality for immigrant and native population groups.
