On Alternative Axiomatization of Sen's Poverty Measure

Abstract

The authors provide an alternative axiomatization of A. K. Sen's (1976) poverty measure. They derive the measure from the general definition of a poverty measure by using a version of Sen's rank order axiom and a substantially weaker form of his normalization axiom. These two axioms, together with a continuity axiom, lead uniquely to the measure suggested by Sen. Copyright 1995 by The International Association for Research in Income and Wealth.
