OPHI Summer School 2018: Multidimensional Poverty Measurement & Analysis

Organised by the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI), University of Oxford, will be held at Oxford Department of International Development, in Oxford, England, 16-27 July 2018.

The purpose of this intensive Summer School is to provide a thorough technical and practical introduction to multidimensional poverty measurement with a strong emphasis on the Alkire-Foster method. Upon completing the course, students will have the skills required to construct and analyse an official national multidimensional poverty measure and to describe its policy relevance. Drawing on Amartya Sen’s capability approach and empirical examples of National and Global Multidimensional Poverty Indices (MPIs), the conceptual and empirical motivation for measuring multidimensional poverty will be presented, as well as the full suite of measurement tools including estimation, dimensional breakdown, disaggregation by population subgroup, standard errors and statistical inference, robustness, communications, policy applications, and so on.
