Poverty is a paradoxical kingdom. Recognizable within the eld for any delicate observer who travels in distant rural parts and concrete slums and meets marginalized humans in a given society, poverty nonetheless is still a problem to conceptual formalization and to size that's in step 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 form of dimension rests on arithmetic. in addition, poverty is multifaceted in accordance with 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 rules. in terms of source of revenue poverty, those difficulties, fairness and ef ciency, have bene ted from very signi cant growth within the eld of economics. related achievements are nonetheless to come back within the quarter of multidimensional poverty. inside this normal heritage, this ebook has a really modest and narrow-scoped aim. It proposes an operational technique for measuring multidimensional poverty, self sufficient from the conceptual starting place, the dimensions and the qualitative in addition to the quantitative nature of the first signs used to explain the poverty of a person, a loved ones or a sociodemographic entity.

Blasius (1994), p. 14. 34 3 Composite Indicator of Poverty cation of poverty determinants, associated with poverty types. In fact, this property, much more than the distributional equivalence one, is the main advantage of MCA for applying factorial concepts and methods to multidimensional poverty analysis. To sum up, due to using the χ2 metric, the difference between MCA and PCA shows up particularly in two properties which seem highly relevant for the poverty meaning of the numerical results.

And symmetrically, for modifying lines and keeping invariant the distance between columns. Concretely, it means that the factorial analysis run with the χ2 metric, as with MCA, is quite robust (stable, invariant), to the way a set of categorical variables, as poverty indicators, is built: extending a set of indicators with closely correlated additional indicators, defining categories within a same indicator, etc. PCA, with the Euclidean metric, is sensitive to such transformations. This theoretical property is empirically observed and illustrated in references given in the preceding footnote.

This is a remarkable consistency property specific to MCA, due to the dual structure of the analysis. Clearly, there is no guarantee that MCA run on the K primary indicators will come out with the FAOC property, and then using the first factorial component as the composite indicator of poverty would be inconsistent and not acceptable. 27 There are two ways of overcoming this unpredictable difficulty: minor adjustments to the set of the K primary indicators, or exploiting more than one factorial axis.
