The investigation also uses various sociodemographic variables describing households to see their impact on poverty. The results indicate that there is a clear link between education and poverty, where technical, higher and postgraduate education variables had the highest incidence. In analyzing the results as a whole, it appears that education becomes an effective tool to overcome poverty.
