PovertyThe alleviation of poverty is increasingly seen as a fundamental economic objective. Poverty creates many economic costs in terms of the opportunity cost of lost output, the cost of welfare provision, and the private and external costs associated with exclusion from normal economic activity. These costs include the costs of unemployment, crime, and poor health. Poverty by definition is complicated and must give consideration to a number of dimensions.

There are fewer people living in extreme poverty in the world today than 30 years ago. While that is an achievement, continuing progress for poor people is far from assured. Inequalities in access to key resources threaten to stall growth and poverty reduction in many places. The world’s poorest have made only a small absolute gain over those 30 years. Extreme poverty is defined by the international community as living on less than $ a day, as measured in international prices (equivalent to $ in ). This number, also known as the international poverty line, is periodically updated to account for inflation and differences in the cost of living; it was originally defined at $1.

Any poverty measure is thus unlikely to satisfy the various demands addressed to it. In particular, every measure has a number of advantages and disadvantages. Important questions in the choice of the poverty measurement methodology include its purpose and the data requirements.
