The Debate on the Poverty Estimates of 1999–2000

Publisher: ICRIER

This Working Paper examines the issue of comparability of the latest poverty estimates prepared by the Planning Commission for the year 1999–2000, with earlier estimates of the 1980s and 1990s focusing on the methodology and database of estimation. It also reviews the literature to discuss the relevance of alternative approaches in this regard. On this basis, the paper assesses the magnitude of poverty reduction during the two decades.
