Poverty is a paradoxical kingdom. Recognizable within the eld for any delicate observer who travels in distant rural components 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 line with such formalization. The research of poverty is multidisciplinary. It is going from ethics to economics, from political technological know-how to human biology, and any kind of dimension rests on arithmetic. furthermore, poverty is multifaceted in response to the kinds 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 team comparisons essential to fairness research. Multidimension- ity additionally complicates the aggregation essential to practice the ef ciency research of guidelines. on the subject of source of revenue poverty, those difficulties, fairness and ef ciency, have bene ted from very signi cant growth within the eld of economics. comparable achievements are nonetheless to return within the sector of multidimensional poverty. inside this basic history, this publication has a really modest and narrow-scoped goal. It proposes an operational method for measuring multidimensional poverty, autonomous from the conceptual foundation, the scale and the qualitative in addition to the quantitative nature of the first symptoms used to explain the poverty of anyone, a loved ones or a sociodemographic entity.

The first component F1 is an interesting candidate for the composite indicator of poverty C, but it must satisfy obvious consistency conditions relative to the signs of the K elements of W . C has the following expression for the population unit i: K W 1,k Ii∗k . 1) column-vector. 11 See Anderson (1958). , the columns of the data matrix X after standardization. The factor score coefficients W 1,k must all be positive (negative) to interpret the first component as a decreasing (increasing) poverty indicator, depending on whether the primary indicators increase (decrease) when people become wealthier.
A simple adaptation of this will be made below in a more general case. 4 MCA Technique Applied to MultidimensionalPoverty Measurement 39 if the primary indicators have been carefully selected, defined and tested, this is a high price to pay for satisfying a technical condition. Although we do not in general favor the elimination of indicators, the option does become more acceptable when the number of indicators K is large and there appears to be some duplication in a specific domain (or dimension) of poverty.
3) and obtain Theil’s first and second measures for γ = 1 and 0 respectively. 4 We write the indices directly in terms of income shares instead of using mean income μ, in order to keep more clearly the link with the theory of distributions. 5) k=1 We recognize here a CES function. For the two specific values γ = 0, −1, the functional forms are K Ci = Iikδk , for γ = 0. 6) δk Iik , for γ = −1. 7) k=1 K Ci = k=1 Conclusion on the entropy inequality indices approach 1. 1). 1). 5. 2.
