Impacts of Policies on Poverty. Absolute Poverty Lines
This module illustrates how to define “absolute” poverty lines, i.e poverty lines based on approaches that consider the welfare position of each individual or household as if it were independent of the conditions of other individuals or households belonging to the same community. In particular, this module will discuss the following methods: - the food energy intake (FEI) - the cost of basic needs (CBN) - the consumption insufficiency method (CI) - the budget standard method (BS) The analogies and differences of the above methods will be highlighted and we shall also illustrate how they can be made operational and how they work, by means of step-by-step procedures and examples.
