The Multidimensional Approach to Poverty Measurement: Case of Morocco
This work aims to understand the poverty phenomenon in Morocco. It is based on the multidimensional poverty assessment and analysis, through the Alkire and Foster approach to poverty measurement (2007). It is also based on the indicators which will allow us to measure the incidence of poverty by constructing a Wellbeing Composite Index (WCI) and by adopting the statistical methodology of step-by-step for Multiple Correspondence Analysis (MCA). This is done by using the DHS database. In our work, the attributes of this approach are classified into the three categories: housing, consumer durable goods and educational level. Our findings show that the incidence of poverty has increased over the past two decades, especially for those households having at least two dimensions. However, it is important to note that disparities between urban and rural areas are larger. This allows us to conclude that poverty has remained a rural phenomenon.
