Uncovering the Hidden Poor: The Importance of Time Deficits

Rania Antonopoulos, Thomas Masterson () and Ajit Zacharias

Economics One-Pager Archive from Levy Economics Institute

Abstract: Standard poverty measurements assume that all households and individuals have enough time to engage in the unpaid cooking, cleaning, and caregiving that are essential to attaining a bare-bones standard of living. But this assumption is false. With the support of the United Nations Development Programme and the International Labour Organization, Senior Scholars Rania Antonopoulos and Ajit Zacharias and Research Scholar Thomas Masterson have constructed an alternative measure of poverty that, when applied to the cases of Argentina, Chile, and Mexico, reveals significant blind spots in the official numbers.
