Editorial Reviews


'This book, written by some of today's leading distributional analysts, provides a highly accessible unified treatment of inequality and poverty measurement and reporting, rich in explanations and concrete empirical examples. The book presents a range of frontier material on ultra-poverty, chronic poverty, hybrid poverty lines, categorical and ordinal variables, multidimensionality, inequality of opportunity, and polarization. Research economists, practitioners, academics, and postgraduate students can all benefit from owning this book. I recommend it highly as an invaluable entrée to almost all facets of economic inequality and poverty.' ---Peter Lambert, Professor of Economics, University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon, United States

'This is a must-have book for practitioners who wish to master the techniques of income distribution measurement. It is a useful book for researchers because it provides new and interesting insights into many 'old issues'. It is also a valuable book for students to reference because it bridges nicely income distribution measurement theory with practice.' ---Zheng Buhong, Professor of Economics, University of Colorado, Denver, Colorado, United States

'This book is one of the best books that I have seen so far on poverty and inequality measurement. It combines technical sophistication with equally rigorous empirical applications. Using systematic and detailed explanations it takes the reader from the very basics of the theory to the frontiers of research in the area. It then takes all these theoretical measures and shows the reader step by step how to put them in to practice using the World Bank Adept software, which can be downloaded free. Anyone interested in poverty and inequality will have much to learn from this book.' ---Indranil Dutta, Lecturer in Economics, University of Manchester, Manchester, United Kingdom
