A fuzzy set approach to poverty measurement

Diego M. Caramuta, Federico Contiggiani. Universidad Nacional del Sur


This paper postulates two poverty indices based on a fuzzyfication of the poverty line approach and shows that they satisfy some of the usual axioms in the poverty line literature. It also shows that the headcount ratio is a particular case of a poverty measure based on fuzzy sets. Finally this paper postulates that fuzzy version of poverty measures will not satisfy the transfer axiom.
