    Albania

    In 1993, in response to persistent
    unemployment, and rising poverty and social unrest, the
    government of Albania introduced an anti-poverty program,
    namely Ndihma Ekonomike; in 1995 it was extended to all poor
    households. This paper estimates the separate effects of
    participation in this income support program and the old-age
    pension program on objective and subjective measures of
    household poverty. The analysis uses the nationally

    This sector report claims that in the
    three years between 2002 and 2005 alone, almost 235,000
    people have moved out of poverty in Albania. Strong economic

    Despite several attempts at reform,
    immovable property rights in Albania are not adequately

    Albania's radical farmland
    distribution is credited with averting an economic crisis
    and social unrest during the transition. But many believe it
    led to a holding structure too fragmented to be efficient,
    and that public efforts to consolidate plots are needed to

    Standards Measurement Survey to explore this quantitatively.
