The recession which had been affecting the Haitian economy in 1981 and 1982 eased slightly during 1983. The gross domestic product, which had fallen somewhat less than 3% in each of those years, made a small recovery of scarcely over 1% in 1983; nevertheless, this amounted to another decrease (-1.2%) in the per capita product. Over the past three years, the per capita gross domestic product has fallen 11%.
