Robust Ordinal Comparisons of Multidimensional Poverty Between South Africa and Egypt
It 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. The present paper discusses 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 proposed using complete and partial bidimensional poverty orderings. JEL classification: D31, D63, I32
