Analysing Poverty Under Alternative Concepts of Resources and Equivalence Scales
A common problem in empirical studies dealing with the identification of the poor is that their results tend to be sensitive to the selection of particular concepts of resources, equivalence scales and poverty lines. This article aims to examine the robustness of the results of poverty analysis to the use of alternative concepts of resources (consumption expenditure, current income, permanent income and the composite index of basic housing amenities and consumer durable goods) equivalence scales (subjective, experts' and food-scales) and poverty lines (fractions of the mean of the respective distribution), with reference to Greece.
