Multidimensional Measurement of Poverty in Pakistan
Since the seminal work of Sen, it has been acknowledged that poverty is a multidimensional phenomenon and the unprecedented availability of relevant data has renewed interest in the multidimensionality of the poverty. The purpose of present study is to estimate the multidimensional poverty in Pakistan by using the data of Pakistan Social and Living Standard Measurement Survey 2005-06. The study used nine dimensions i.e. electricity, asset, water, sanitation, housing, education, expenditures, land, and empowerment. Results indicate that majority of Pakistan’s households are deprived in five dimensions: Empowerment, Land, Housing, Sanitation and Asset. Overall 22.8 percent households are living below the expenditure poverty line, and in urban area 11.3% are expenditure deprived and 28.6% are expenditure deprived in rural area.
