Les mesures monétaires et directes de la pauvreté sont-elles substituables ? Investigations sur base de la courbe du ROC
The practical utility of the non monetary approaches of poverty is assessed on the basis of the study of the overlap between income and direct outcome measures of poverty. The use of the graphic method of the curve of the Receiver Operating Characteristics allows, contrary to the approach traditionally used, to assess the degree of overlap independently of the threshold of deprivation. The application of this methodology to the data of the European Community Household Panel shows a significant discrepancy between these approaches, hence advocating for a complementary, rather than substitutable, use of these approaches and for further research on the methods of measurement of multidimensional poverty. JEL Classification – I32.
