Poverty is a human inability to meet the needs of life. Factors that affect poverty can be seen from various indicators. In this study, the path analysis method was used to analyze the factors that directly and indirectly influence poverty in Sulawesi. The results showed that the number of poor people, the labor force participation rate, the human development index, and the average length of schooling had a direct effect on the poverty depth index. Then, the human development index, the average length of schooling, and the poverty depth index have a direct effect on the poverty level. Then, the human development index and the average length of schooling also indirectly affect the poverty level through the poverty depth index.
