Statistical inference for poverty indices with fixed poverty lines
The consistency and asymptotic normality of estimators for two classes of poverty indices, decomposable indices, and Sen-like indices is demonstrated. Asymptotic variance expressions are obtained that allow for easy distribution-free statistical inference on the resulting estimates. An empirical example using Canadian microdata demonstrates the feasibility and usefulness of the techniques.
