Abstract

This paper presents a new model for defining the poverty line using the Kakwani (2010) approach and developing a possible candidate for the construction of a new official poverty line. The model uses consumer theory to construct both food and non-food poverty thresholds and ensures that the poverty line is consistent across regions.
