Poverty alleviation programs is the most important of the public sector policies. Design effective a policy for poverty reduction is requires the identifying time change socio-economic characteristics of households. If we want to investigate and evaluate the effects of specific supportive policies and programs in the field of poverty entail the measurement of poverty changes over time. Income mobility is a new concept in Iranian economy issues. Differences in socio-economic status of individuals and or different thouseholds can creates inequality among individuals of society. Creating such inequalities have led to the formation of poverty and the change in income distribution. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of income mobility on the poverty in Iran. In this regard, using the econometric model Auto-Regresive Distributed Lag and using time series data during the years (1363-1392) research topic investigated. The results suggest that effectiveness of all the coefficients of the variables of the model is consistent with economic theories and income mobility has effect negative and significant on poverty in the long term, and Error Correction Model shows that in each period, (each year) about 0/52 from short-term imbalances will be adjusted to achieve the long-term equilibrium.
