    quantitative social scientists working in both research and policy. As a contribution to this polycephalous endeavour, this book provides a systematic conceptual, theoretical, and methodological introduction to quantitative multidimensional poverty measurement and Size: 3MB. Several methodologies for multidimensional poverty measurement have been proposed, which can be broadly grouped into axiomatic and information theory approaches, fuzzy set theories, and latent variable methods (Alkire and Foster la, p. ).3 The methodology proposed by Alkire and Foster (, a) (AF hereafter) which belongs to the axi.

    Recent theoretical and empirical studies have concluded that in order to be accurate, poverty and deprivation must be measured within a multidimensional framework that is consistent, efficient, and statistically robust. The fuzzy sets approach to poverty measurement was developed in the early s. 2. Different approaches to poverty From a social researcher's point of view, poverty is a complex phenomenon influenced by a large number of factors and which can be studied from many different perspectives.
