Review: Poverty and the Measurement of Individual Welfare

Contents:

Author Info

  • Joop Hartog

Abstract

This review of Hagenaars' The Perception of Poverty gives a lengthy presentation and evaluation of the Leyden approach of measuring the individual welfare function of income. The key feature of the approach is the claim that welfare can be measured on a 0,1 scale. The review discusses the book's wealth of material on poverty in Europe within this theoretical framework.
