Resources, Deprivation and Poverty
Brian Nolan, Christopher T. WhelanISBN: 0198287852;
The core issue of this book is how to define and measure poverty in relatively rich countries in a way which is valid, meaningful in the context, and valuable for policy-making. The authors concentrate on the identification of the poor, rather than the subsequent aggregation of the statistics to derive an overall index of poverty--which is the focus of most recent literature.
