Comparaisons ordinales robustes de la pauvreté multidimensionnelle : Afrique du Sud et Égypte
AbstractIt is common to argue that poverty is a multidimensional issue. Yet few studies have included the various dimensions of deprivation to yield a broader and fuller picture of poverty. In this paper, we discuss the ethical foundations of the main approaches dealing with multidimensional poverty measures. An illustration of these measures to household data from Egypt and South Africa is offered using complete and partial bi-dimensional poverty orderings.
