Poverty Among Children and the Eldrely in Developing Countries

Angus Deaton () and Christina Paxson

Working Papers from Princeton, Woodrow Wilson School - Development Studies

Abstract: This paper is concerned with the measurement of the relative poverty of people in different age groups in developing countries. In many instances it is useful to know, for example, whether a higher fraction of children are in poverty than are adults. However, it is difficult to make even simple poverty comparisons of this sort. A perennial difficulty is the passage from household data to individual welfare.
