Transitions in poverty and its deprivations

Social Choice and Welfare, 2018, vol. 51, issue 2, 235-258

Abstract: Abstract This paper explores a novel way to analyse poverty dynamics that is specific to certain measures of multidimensional poverty, such as the “adjusted headcount ratio” of the Alkire–Foster class of measures. Assuming there is panel data available, I show that a simultaneous and comprehensive account of transitions in deprivations and poverty allows complex interdependencies between dimensions in a dynamic context to be handled and, at the same time, allows for several advanced types of analyses. These analyses include (i) a decomposition of changes in multidimensional poverty, which reveals why poverty decreases or increases; (ii) a framework to examine and understand the relationship between the dashboard approach and dimensional contributions and multidimensional poverty in a dynamic setting; (iii) a presentation of methods that illuminate the process of the accumulation of deprivations. The suggested types of analyses are illustrated using German panel data. Implications for monitoring and policy evaluation are discussed.
