Summary
"This book focuses on two domains: the measurement of absolute consumption poverty and a first-order dominance approach to multidimensional welfare analysis. In each domain, it provides a series of computer codes designed to facilitate analysis by allowing the analyst to start from a flexible and known base. The volume covers the theoretical grounding for the code streams provided, a chapter on 'estimation in practice', and a series of 11 case studies where the code streams are operationalized, as well as a synthesis, an extension to inequality, and a look forward."--Page [4] of cover
