Abstract

The methodology of the anthropometric indices of chronic poverty at early stages of human development is reviewed by including the possibility of using wealth or consumption as an alternative to income for the representation of an integral dimension of socioeconomic status as well as remarking the methodological adaptability of the indicator to several anthropometric criteria for growth assessment as an integral dimension of the physiologic status for the next generation of poor. Furthermore, a framework on strategies of generational and agricultural policies is discussed to target long-term human development.
