This study tries to determine the differentiated factors of households’ transition to poverty in Benin. It was carried out on a sample of 6424 households making up data from the integrated modular survey on household living conditions. Descriptive analysis and econometric modeling as Stata 12 was used. From the results of this study, it appears that the geographical location of households in cotton and rice fields increases their chances to emerge from poverty. That reflects the positive effect of a good agricultural season on household living standard. Increasing the household size increases the household's risk of entering or remaining poor.
Key words: Poverty, differentiated factors, transition, Benin.
