Abstract: five years, the extent of poverty in the country has remained shockingly great and the living standards of the masses alarmingly low. The interest in jhe study of the mass poverty problem is of recent origin in Pakistan. Earlier studies have examined the problem mainly from th" point of view of an equitable distribution of income and wealth and their analysis has been principally based on their relative shares. However, one study [6] deals with the specific problem of mass poverty in Pakistan, taking into account the absolute levels. The study, done by Naseem, analyses consumption expenditure of the masses by making use of the Housthold Income and Expenditure Survey [9] data for the years 1963-64, 1966-67, 1968-69 and 1969-70.
