Measuring Poverty. It is difficult to estimate poverty accurately because the concept of 'poverty' is not easy to define and even once it is defined it is not easy to measure in a way that is true to the definition. This paper surveys the methodological steps required to produce poverty estimates and highlights the limitations or assumptions associated with each step. "An Introduction to Poverty Measurement Issues" by Harry Greenwell, Rachel Lloyd and Ann Harding is published by the NATSEM.
