Luc Christiaensen, Lorraine Telfer-Taivainen - UNU-WIDER, 2012 - Helsinki, Finland

Luc Christiaensen and Lorraine Telfer-Taivainen If a person suddenly becomes poor, for example, due to an unexpected death or illness in the family, they will have a rather different experience and understanding of poverty than someone who has been impoverished almost their entire life....

Part of Journal Special Issue Measuring Poverty Over Time

Luc Christiaensen, Anthony F. Shorrocks - Journal of Economic Inequality, 2012 - Dordrecht, Netherlands

People often move in and out of poverty, and the length of time spent in poverty can vary widely, likely affecting prospects of escaping and staying out of poverty. Current poverty measures do not account for these aspects. Should they? Are there sound theoretical foundations for shifting towards...

Luc Christiaensen, Peter Lanjouw, Jill Luoto, David C. Stifel - UNU-WIDER, 2010 - Helsinki, Finland

Tracking poverty is predicated on the availability of comparable consumption data and reliable price deflators. However, regular series of strictly comparable data are only rarely available. Poverty prediction methods that track consumption correlates as opposed to consumption itself have been...

South African household surveys typically contain coarsened earnings data, which consist of a mixture of missing earnings values, point responses and interval-censored responses. This paper uses sequential regression multivariate imputation to impute missing and interval-censored values in the 2000...

The analysis of poverty dynamics yields important insights about the expected effectiveness of alternative social policies on poverty reduction. This paper analyses the effect of spell recurrence on poverty dynamics taking into account multiple poverty and non-poverty spells. Using longitudinal...

Michael Hoy, Brennan Scott Thompson, Buhong Zheng - UNU-WIDER, 2010 - Helsinki, Finland

This paper demonstrates the implications of adopting an approach to measuring poverty that takes into account the lifetime experience of individuals rather than simply taking a static or cross-sectional perspective. Our approach follows the theoretical innovations in Hoy and Zheng (2008) which...

We examine the measurement of individual poverty in an intertemporal context. Our aim is to capture the importance of persistence in a state of poverty and we characterize a corresponding individual intertemporal poverty measure. Our first axiom requires that intertemporal poverty is identical to...

– Income over Time, Aspirations and Reference Groups
Carolina Castilla - UNU-WIDER, 2010 - Helsinki, Finland

How a person assesses the wellbeing derived from income is often determined as much by its contrast with a reference point as by the level of income itself. In this paper, I use a household survey from Mexico to examine how subjective poverty assessments not only depend on the absolute level of...

Working Paper pdf
Patrick Guillaumont, Catherine Korachais - UNU-WIDER, 2010 - Helsinki, Finland

Macroeconomic instability has been increasingly considered as a factor lowering average income growth and, in this way, is a factor slowing down poverty reduction. But it can also result in slower poverty reduction for a given average rate of growth, due to poverty traps, often examined at the...
