Inequality of Access to Landed Property in Cameroon: A Decomposition of the Gender Effect
Minfede Koe Raoul

This study analyzes the determinants of inequalities of access to landed property between men and women in Cameroon. The study is based on data from the third Cameroon Household Survey (ECAM 3, 2007). We apply the nonlinear model of decomposition of inequalities of Fairlie (199 9; 2005). The results obtained show: a negative contribution of variables like income, the level of education, the size of the household, the branch of industry and the religion. These variables contribute to discrimination against women as concerns access to landed property. They reinforce the deviations in the detention title documents between men and women.
