A multidimensional approach to the measurement of poverty
By using fuzzy set theory a cross country multidimensional analysis of poverty is performed on the basis of ECHP data. A set of composite indicators is contructed in order to analyse different dimensions of poverty. For each indicator is calculated an unidimensional poverty ratio, thus allowing a comparison among countries and indicators on the dimensions of poverty. Finally, for each country a multidimensional poverty ratio is obtained.
