NEW BOOK: Louis-Marie Asselin - ANALYSIS OF MULTIDIMENSIONAL POVERTY Theory and Case Studies

This book presents a new method for measuring multidimensional poverty. The author critically analyzes various statistical approaches, and proposes a new way of applying a factorial technique, Multiple Correspondence Analysis, to poverty analysis.

PEP has a new website!!

As the PEP network's scope and magnitude of activities continues to increase, a revamping of the PEP web site became necessary. The new web site seeks to facilitate public access to information on PEP studies, publications and researchers. In addition to a more colourful presentation, it features tools to search the web site by theme and country of interest. We hope that the new web site will help promote PEP researchers and their PEP-funded studies to policy makers, researchers and other individuals and institutions interested by poverty issues.
