Weitere Infos & Material
The first chapter considers general ethically flexible relative and absolute indicators of poverty that determine the size of welfare loss resulting from existence of poverty. As shown in the second chapter, a transformation of the Sen Poverty index drops out as a special case of the relative index if social evaluation is done with respect to the Gini welfare function. The third chapter introduces a subgroup decomposable index of poverty that has a straightforward policy application. The next chapter examines the measurement of poverty in an inter-temporal context. The fifth chapter of the collection presents the well-known Bourguignon-Chakravarty family of multidimensional poverty indices and shows the relevance of inter-dimensional association in a multivariate set up. The sixth and seventh chapters deal respectively with characterizations of a family of unit consistent multidimensional poverty indices, and the Watts index, a composite index in the widely known Stiglitz-Sen-Fitoussi framework. The eighth chapter analyzes multidimensional poverty orderings by explicitly establishing their dependence on inter-dimensional association. The ninth chapter presents a survey of multidimensional indicators. The three final chapters, based on the counting approach, are concerned re spectively with a formal treatment of the notion of social exclusion, material deprivation and integer stochastic dominance.
