According to an instructive survey conducted by the Centre for Applied Social Research of the University of Mauritius "some 54% of the sample population had a total monthly personal income of less than Rs 4,000. 7% of the respondents enjoyed a personal income of greater than Rs 10,000 per months. Only 5% brought in Rs 12,000 or more."
The result of this survey is a blatant response to the "Mauritian miracle" propaganda conducted by neo-liberal ideologues.
This survey entitled Mauritian Social Attitudes Survey 2002 has for unknown reasons not yet made public.
