New Research in Progress paper proposes multidimensional poverty measure in Ecuador

César A. Amores L., Adviser to the Ministry of Social Development Coordination in Ecuador, has published an OPHI Research in Progress paper in Spanish titled ‘Medición de la Pobreza Multidimensional: El Caso Ecuatoriano’ (‘Measurement of Multidimensional Poverty: The Case of Ecuador’).

The paper discusses the author’s proposal for the implementation of the Alkire Foster method to assess multidimensional poverty in Ecuador. The measure he proposes is initially intended to evaluate progress towards poverty reduction targets, as evaluation is currently done by measuring income poverty.
