Declining Poverty in India: A Decomposition Analysis

Publisher: Institute of Economic Growth

In an attempt to delineate the sources of change in the incidence of poverty in India and to assess their relative contribution in reducing (or raising) the poverty incidence in the eighties and nineties. In this paper two reference points are taken, one is expresses the percentage change in the poverty index between two time points into growth effect, inequality effect and the population shift effect while the second one measures it in terms of changes in per capita income (GDP), sectoral composition of value added, labour productivity and employment in organized manufacturing relative to the poor who are largely engaged in low productivity activities.
