– Snapshots in the Presence of Multiple Economy-Wide Shocks
David Stifel, Tiaray Razafimanantena, Faly Rakotomanana - UNU-WIDER, 2014 - Helsinki, Finland

We use Arndt and Simler’s (2010) utility-consistent approach to calculating poverty lines to analyse poverty in Madagascar in 2001, 2005 and 2010. Because two major political crises occurred between the survey periods, the snapshots of national poverty rising from 56.3 per cent in 2001 to 59....

Based on a statistical procedure that combines household survey data with population census data, this paper presents estimates of inequality for three developing countries at a level of disaggregation far below that allowed by household surveys alone. We show that while the share of within-...
