Abstract: This paper analyzes the incidence of forced displacement on multidimensional poverty at the municipal level in Antioquia, Colombia. To measure poverty we compute the Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI). The forced displacement data is used as a measure of armed conflict intensity. Then, through a Seemingly Unrelated Regression (SUR) model, it is found that in rural Antioquia the living standards and education dimensions account for a big share of multidimensional poverty, whereas in urban Antioquia are the employment and income dimensions. Moreover, it was found that the municipal level of poverty were highly sensitive to the rate of reception of forced displacement people.
