And bring forward the countermeasuresand suggestions which depend on the conclusion above.The study includes the following chapters:Chapter1, beginning with the conception of poverty, this chaptermakes a system literature carding both abroad and home which is aboutthe effect of poverty reduction by the income growth and distribution.And we point out that the research of urban poverty in china is lack bothon quantitative and dynamic analysis.Chapter2, analyzing some index of economic growth. we are goingto find the real connection between the economic and poverty.
