This book explores the perceived causal attributions of poverty among youths in Bahir Dar. The book explores the respondents'' poverty attributions could be distinguished along three main dimensions: structural, individualistic and fatalistic. The findings in this book showed that youths in Bahir Dar were more inclined to attribute poverty to structural factors. Group breakdowns revealed some important significant differences related to the respondents'' demographic variables and socioeconomic status of parents. Statistically significant interaction effects were also observed among demographic variables and socioeconomic status of parents on the three possible explanations of poverty. The book suggests that respondents perceived potential causes of poverty to be more structural than individualistic thereby emphasizing more on community based poverty reduction intervention strategies. The results of the study also provided an insight on the way Bahir Dar youths'' perceive poverty, with recommendations for developing poverty reduction interventions accordingly.
