[en] Multidimensional Poverty Measurement ; Unit Consistency
[en] This paper characterizes a family of subgroup decomposable unit consistent multidimensional
poverty indices. Unit consistency requires that poverty rankings should remain unaltered when
dimensions are expressed in different measurement units. The characterized family is a simple
generalization of a family of unit consistent income poverty index suggested by Zheng (2007a).
