Decomposing Spatial Differences in Poverty in India
No RP2004-53, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)
Over the last decade, India has been one of the fastest growing economies, and has experienced considerable decline in overall income poverty. However, in a vast country like India, poverty levels vary significantly across the different states. In this paper, we analyze the differences between poverty at the state and national level, separately for the rural and urban sector, in the year 1999-2000. Instead of following the usual practice of decomposing the changes in poverty over time, we decompose the changes in poverty across regions.
