Supplemental or Experimental Poverty Measures

491. A number of questions become especially pertinent when poverty measured are compared for different groups even within a single country: What is the role of differences in the cost of living? What adjustments do poverty thresholds and resource measures need to adequately capture differences in well-being? What assumptions should be made about resource sharing within the household? What role do assets play in determining well-being? What additional dimensions need to be considered when analysing poverty from a multidimensional perspective? Harmonized standards do not necessarily give satisfactory answers. Nonetheless disaggregation of poverty measures requires careful assessment how it is affected by the methodological problems underlying these questions.
