Registered author(s):

    Initial debate on poverty focused mainly on poverty measurement and effectiveness of poverty alleviation measures. After the publication of the Human Development Report there was a significant change in the academic view about Poverty. It is well accepted now that poverty cannot be captured only through consumption-related variables. Therefore, it was felt necessary to understand different facets of poverty through non-consumption variables and continuous monitoring. The present paper tries to provide a set of non-consumption measures of poverty for the purpose of monitoring and the process of poverty monitoring.
