Rural households in Côte dIvoire face a variety of shocks, the most common of them are those related to the health and death of an active member of the household. Based on data from the household living standard survey (ENV2015), we have identified the determinants of welfare of these rural households from a multiple linear regression. Our results showed that household size, farmland possession, and shock have a negative impact on household welfare while age, education, and industry activity of the head of households have a positive influence on welfare, provided that the household head operates in a sector other than agriculture and has at least primary education.
