A Family of Multidimensional Poverty Measures
Relatively little research has been conducted until now on the multidimensional aspect of poverty measurement, that is poverty mesaures defined on various income and non-income attributes and their gaps with respect to pre-specified subsitence levels. The present paper investigates the properties of a family of poverty measures introduced by Foster, Greer and Thorbecke (1984) by aggregating the relative shortfalls of the various attributes from their respective subsistence quantities into a constant elasticity of substitution function.
