Measuring Multidimensional Poverty: Insights from Around the World

Measuring Multidimensional Poverty: Insights from Around the World

BROCHURE: Case studies from around the world

OPHI, 2011

Case studies on how the Alkire Foster method of measuring multidimensional poverty has been adapted and applied in Colombia, Mexico, Bhutan, China, El Salvador, Malaysia and Minas Gerais in Brazil, among others.

Sabina Alkire and James Foster have created a method for measuring multidimensional poverty. It includes identifying 'who is poor' by considering the range of deprivations they suffer, and aggregating that information to reflect societal poverty in a way that is robust and decomposable.

The brochure outlines the implementation the Alkire Foster method, and focuses on the different institutions and mechanisms countries have used to implement the measure in their specific contexts.
