Decent statistics are hard to come by in Haiti, but most studies show that more than half of Haitians live on less than $1 a day. Around 80 percent live on less than $2 a day. So, making three bucks per day puts a person into a small elite of high earners.
Also, how much does the average Haitian make a year?
The annual per capita income is about US$450, and most of the population (60 percent) faces underemployment.
Subsequently, question is, why is Haiti's GDP so low?
In recent years, natural disasters, disease, political instability, mismanagement of humanitarian relief, and a depreciation of the gourde—Haiti's currency—have strained the economy. Tourism, once a vibrant sector, has declined.

Haiti is a free market economy with low labor costs and tariff-free access to the US for many of its exports. Two-fifths of all Haitians depend on the agricultural sector, mainly small-scale subsistence farming, which remains vulnerable to damage from frequent natural disasters.
