Abstract
This paper discusses the relationship between tobacco production and poverty reduction among the households particularly at Urambo District in Tanzania whereby more than 60% of the tobacco produced in Tanzania comes from Urambo. The study included 60 households growing tobacco. The study used two models in analyzing and presentation of data, which were STATA and SPSS software. The first model was Double-log function. This model analyzed factors affecting tobacco production that is the relationship between inputs and outputs. It found that R2 was highly significant at 5% level with the value of 0.6393 which implies that 63% of the total variations in tobacco yield were explained by combining the influence of the all explanatory variables in the regression equation. The second model used was Binary (Binomial) Logic Model that analyzed the effects of income earned from tobacco production. It was found that about 92% of the total variations were significant at 5% level, that tobacco production has helped to reduce poverty among the households. The results of this study indicated clearly that tobacco production was the major source of income in Urambo District.
