Abstract/Description: This paper examines whether receptive tourism has an impact on subjective poverty in host communities in Peru. Controlling for household characteristics, as well as district, province, and region characteristics, it is found---by means of linear probability models---that an increase in tourist presence in its province reduces a household's probability of being subjectively poor. Following standard practice in past literature, subjective poverty is defined in relation to subjective poverty lines derived from answers to the "minimum income question." Similarly, I explore the effect of tourist presence on subjective relative poverty as defined by answers to the "economic ladder question." The effects of tourism exhibit the same direction in both cases. Finally, this paper reports tourist presence statistics at the provincial, regional, and national levels, as well as subjective poverty and subjective relative poverty statistics at the regional and national levels.
