Abstract: Poverty has been regarded as a typical feature of most households in Ethiopia. But the poor constitute significant differences among themselves as poverty itself is more subjective and relative concept. The study attempted to analyse major characteristics of urban poor households by taking an empirical case study of one administrative unit (wereda) from Addis Ababa. The study tries to asses the various estimates of poverty made particularly after the period of transition. There are no clear indications of declining poverty particularly in urban areas. The need for further study and much greater effort for poverty alleviation is marked by some of the recent studies. This study shares the same views based on the survey results of selected urban households in wereda 11Addis Ababa. It is also noted that conscious and deliberate measures of poverty reduction should lie at the centre of any development strategy. However such measure requires knowledge about characteristics and magnitude of the poor. Therefore this paper is an attempt to investigate major characteristics of poverty at a micro scale
