Índices y ordenamientos de pobreza: Una aplicación para México

Estudios Económicos, 1991, vol. 6, issue 2, 271-285

Abstract: This paper uses Atkinson's and Foster and Shorrocks's approach to generate poverty orderings for different population groups in Mexico. The poverty is measured using a range of poverty lines valued from zero to an arbitrary maximum. Poverty is estimated using three poverty measures: the head-count ratio, the normalized poverty gap, and the Foster et al. P3 index. For the comparison undertaken here the head-count ratio yields an unambiguous ordering.
