Measuring Pro-poor Growth
World Bank, Development Research Group, Poverty, 2001 - Economic development - 11 pages
Ravallion and Chen provide some new tools for assessing to what extent the aggregate growth process in an economy is pro-poor. The key measurement tool is the 'growth incidence curve', which gives growth rates by quantiles (such as percentiles) ranked by income. Taking the area under this curve up to the headcount index of poverty gives a measure of the rate of pro-poor growth consistent with the Watts index for the level of poverty.
