Making every dimension count: multidimensional poverty without the â€œdual cut offâ€
This paper takes a critical look at the class of multidimensional poverty measures recently proposed by Alkire and Foster (2007, 2011a). The critique centres on the specific formulation of the dominance axioms, in particular the weak transfer and the weak rearrangement axioms. Stronger versions of these dominance axioms as well as a new cross-dimensional convexity axiom are proposed leading to a new class of multidimensional poverty measures.
