The Relevance of Poverty Measurement to Food Security Policy
AbstractWhile food security policies have been too frequently formulated, this article argues that the measurement of its incidence has not been on a regular basis. This study describes a number of concepts useful in poverty analysis and explains the great inertia or even positive resistance against new measurement. Nevertheless, the measures should conform to the presumed social bias in favor of the poor.
