Poverty is a paradoxical kingdom. Recognizable within the eld for any delicate observer who travels in distant rural parts and concrete slums and meets marginalized humans in a given society, poverty nonetheless is still a problem to conceptual formalization and to dimension that's in keeping with such formalization. The research of poverty is multidisciplinary. It is going from ethics to economics, from political technology to human biology, and any form of size rests on arithmetic. furthermore, poverty is multifaceted in accordance with the categories of deprivation, and it's also gender and age speci c. A vector of variables is needed, which increases a considerable challenge for person and crew comparisons essential to fairness research. Multidimension- ity additionally complicates the aggregation essential to practice the ef ciency research of guidelines. in relation to source of revenue poverty, those difficulties, fairness and ef ciency, have bene ted from very signi cant development within the eld of economics. related achievements are nonetheless to come back within the quarter of multidimensional poverty. inside of this basic historical past, this ebook has a truly modest and narrow-scoped aim. It proposes an operational method for measuring multidimensional poverty, self reliant from the conceptual foundation, the dimensions and the qualitative in addition to the quantitative nature of the first signs used to explain the poverty of somebody, a family or a sociodemographic entity.

27 We use X for the matrix of centered variables. 19b has a strong meaning in terms 1 of multidimensional poverty: it is the average multidimensional poverty level of the group of individuals having the category jk of the primary indicator Ik . But the ∗1,k , either negative or positive since by construction the avernumerical value of W jk age is zero, is irrelevant inasmuch as the numerical scaling of Ik remains unchanged relative to the distances between categories. Developing this idea, it is possible to improve the meaning of the categorical weights by rescaling Ik with the gap between the worst-off individuals, jk = 1, and any better-off group, jk = 1.

If the weighting approach is maintained for the optimization criterion, obviously there remains the problem of determining the weights δk in a nonarbitrary way. There is in fact an optimal system of weights for the functional form (B), as Maasoumi (1999) has himself observed: the basic factorial method of principal components. This is precisely the type of methods that is reviewed below. 2 CIP Based on Poverty Structure Analysis: Inertia Concepts, Factorial Approaches To a K-dimensional poverty vector is associated a K-dimensional distribution.

Blasius (1994), p. 14. 34 3 Composite Indicator of Poverty cation of poverty determinants, associated with poverty types. In fact, this property, much more than the distributional equivalence one, is the main advantage of MCA for applying factorial concepts and methods to multidimensional poverty analysis. To sum up, due to using the χ2 metric, the difference between MCA and PCA shows up particularly in two properties which seem highly relevant for the poverty meaning of the numerical results. Property #1 (marginalization preference) Factorial scores produced by MCA overweight the smaller categories within each primary indicator.
