ABSTRACT

The main purpose of this study is to analyze the effects of household and regional characteristics on poverty in Seoul. For the stated purpose, this study examines major determinants of household poverty status, using the Seoul Welfare Panel data and other government's official statistics. The Hierarchical Generalized Linear Model(HGLM) identifies variables of both levels in household and regional attributes, predicting probabilities of poverty. The findings show that the relative poverty measure based on 50% of the median household income is about 15.92%. Household headed by aged, low educated, divorced, or unemployed relatively make up a larger proportion of the poverty population. Number of jobs and number of workers in small business are significant predictors in regional level to explain household poverty status. Therefore, antipoverty policy should be considered at the both levels of household as well as community.
