XIMENES, Verônica Morais et al. Community feeling and rural poverty in the northeast, north and south of Brazil. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.1, pp. 1-13. ISSN 2359-0769.

This study aims to analyze the relationship between community feeling and rural poverty in three municipalities, one in the Northeast, another in the North and the other in the South of Brazil. The quantitative research involved the participation of 1,113 subjects, who answered questionnaires composed of a Multidimensional Poverty instrument and the Community Sentiment Index. Statistical analyses were performed: T-Test, Anova, Pearson Correlation Test, and Descriptive Statistics. Community feeling was present moderately/high in the municipalities P (Northeast) and C (South) and moderately/low in Municipality H (North). The Affiliation Factor of Community Feeling, related to the association of people with the community and the feeling of being part of the group, presented the highest averages in the three municipalities and the general sample, followed by the Shared Emotional Bonds factor. In the analysis of dimensions present in multidimensional poverty, the three dimensions of Work / Income, Subjective, and Health were those that presented a significant and negative correlation with community feeling. In the general sample, their results point to a negative correlation between community feeling and multidimensional poverty. In light of this, when analyzing community feeling, it is important to incorporate these dimensions of multidimensional poverty to better understand the impact of poverty on people's lives.
