Title
  • POVDECO: Stata module to calculate poverty indices with decomposition by subgroup
Author
  • Stephen P. Jenkins
Physical Description
  • code
Notes
  • povdeco estimates three poverty indices from the Foster, Greer and Thorbecke (1984) class, FGT(a), plus related statistics (such as mean income amongst the poor). FGT(0) is the headcount ratio (the proportion poor); FGT(1) is the average normalised poverty gap; FGT(2) is the average squared normalised poverty gap. The larger that a is, the greater the degree of 'poverty aversion' (sensitivity to large poverty gaps). Optionally provided are decompositions of these indices by population subgroup. This version is for Stata versions 8.2 onwards. For versions 5 to 8.1, use povdeco5 instead.
