1 for a methodological discussion on poverty indices and their properties see, sen (1976) foster, greer, and thorbecke (1984) foster (1984) and atkinson ( 1987) 2 the problem arises, in our view correctly so, when one tries to determine whether poverty has increased or decreased using a poverty range rather than a. Twenty-five years ago, the fgt class of decomposable poverty measures was introduced in foster, greer, and thorbecke (econometrica 52:761–776, 1984) the present study provides a retrospective view.

Head count index of poverty (pg0) α = 0: n q pg = 0 this measure fails to capture the extent to which individual income (or expenditure) falls below the poverty line hence we use our second measure: the poverty gap index (pg1) given by the aggregate income shortfall of the poor as a proportion of the poverty line and.
Downloadable this command combines two of the most widely used measures in the inequality and poverty literatures: the concentration index (ci) and the foster–greer–thorbecke (fgt) metric it does so by applying the fgt transformation to a variable of interest (depvar) and by calculating the ci of the transformed.

Following sen (1976), there have been many functional forms proposed in the literature consider, for example, the sen index s defined as s = h(i + (1-i)gp) ( 1) where gp is the gini inequality index among the poor or the measure p2, drawn from the foster-greer-thorbecke (fgt) class of indices and having the formula.

Based on foster-greer-thorbecke poverty indices that capture joint distribution of deprivation and satisfy a large number of axioms for poverty measurement un adopted this method 2010 for calculation of multidimensional poverty index (mpi) based on indicators of health, education and standard of living.
This paper identifies a multiplicative decomposition for the foster-greer- thorbecke poverty indices as a product of the three components which should be involved in every poverty index: the incidence of poverty, measured by the headcount ratio, the intensity of poverty, measured by the aggregate income gap ratio and the. Poverty analysis has relied heavily on data in summarized form and this has created dearth of knowledge on the statistical properties of foster-greer- thorbecke (fgt) poverty indices this study derived estimators of fgt poverty indices from first principles in an attempt to provide an insight into some intrinsic characteristics.

Such as china implies that the commonly accepted international poverty line definition of one half median national equivalent income is increasingly relevant and that poverty intensity (the normalized deficit or foster greer thorbecke (fgt) index of order one) is a better summary index this index has a convenient graphical.
