Some surveys of this literature in-cludeDeatonandMuellbauer(),Blundell(),Browning(),PollakandWales (), Blundell, Preston, and Walker (), Blackorby and Donaldson (), Bour-. limit the use of asset-based indices as alternative measures of welfare. First of all, the wealth index provides a relative measure of welfare – namely a household’s wealth is measured relative to other households in the sample – but does not quantify the household’s current levels of welfare or poverty (Filmer and Pritchett, ).
In Arthur Lewbel showed how household equivalence scales proposed by Jorgenson and Slesnick () can be used for this purpose. 9 Evaluation of economic policies. In Jorgenson and Wilcoxen surveyed the evaluation of economic policies by . The choice of a welfare measure, including an equivalence scale, is ultimately based on value judgements about which differences of opinion must be expected. This alone should make one cautious about the statements one often hears concerning the relationship between poverty and household size.
household (call this X) by the income (or total expenditure, xA) of the childless household found to have the same level of expenditure on adult-specific goods, one derives the household "equivalence scale," (x/xA) which expresses the relative cost of attaining a given adult welfare level across the with and without- children household types. Subjective methods – Parametric equivalence scales Parametric methods of estimating equivalence scales are the shortest way for an analyst to achieve the result of comparing households of different sizes and composition. The main characteristic of Parametric Equivalence Scales (PES) is that they are based on «discretionary» choices.

Downloadable. This paper makes a comparative study of some variants of the most frequently used poverty indices, obtained by modifying the welfare indicator (income, consumption, or income/assets), the equivalence scale (OECD or square root of the number of components), the local price adjustment index and the statistic used for identifying the poverty threshold (average or median).

The remaining sections of the paper cover the effects of a selected set of these equivalence scales on cross-national measures of income inequality, poverty. TRUE HOUSEHOLD EQUIVALENCE SCALES AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE POOR IN THE UNITED STATES.
Household characteristics are incorporated using the scaling method proposed by Barten (). Using the welfare indicator derived, we study the composition of the poorest part of the population, using data from the –73 Consumer Expenditure Survey. Equivalence Scale Exactness (ESE) or Independence of Base (IB), a condition on household preferences and interpersonal comparisons, makes adult-equivalence scales independent of.

weights, or ‘equivalence scales’, is brieﬂy discussed in Section 4. Finally, Section 5 presents a discussion of ways to explore the uncertainty underlying our measures.
Poverty lines are always arbitrary, at least in part, and our data, even with instruments such as the LSMS, are subject to substantial errors in measurement. While the household's resources can be objectively observed and enumerated, the same cannot be said of their needs.
At what point in the continuum of household consumption does a household move from "not having enough" to "having enough"? This discussion underscores the role equivalence scales can play in the setting of poverty thresholds.In Measuring Poverty a distinguished panel provides policymakers with an up-to-date evaluation of.
Concepts and procedures for deriving the poverty threshold, including adjustments for different family circumstances. Definitions of family resources. Procedures for annual updates of poverty measures.I start with household surveys, how they are used to document living standards, inequality, and poverty and, beyond that, to understand behavior.
From there, it is a short step, in Section II, to demand analysis, which looks at how consumption patterns respond to prices and incomes. Understanding such effects is necessary.
