Poverty has declined in Ghana over the years.

Based on the new poverty line for 2012/13, the welfare levels for 2005/06 were adjusted with a deflator of 3.3 for non-food;and 2.9 for food; these were estimated over the 7-year period using the consmer price index for the period under consideration.
The revised welfare levels for 2005/06 indicate that overall poverty incidence for 2005/06 was 31.9 percent with a poverty gap of 11.0 percent. That is if Ghanaians were consuming the current basket of items in 2005/06, poverty level for Ghana for 2005/06 would have been 31.9 percent
