A New Model for Constructing Poverty Lines / - p.35-54 - Vol. 37 No. 2 Second Sem 2010 .

This paper presents a new model for constructing poverty lines. The model uses consumer theory to construct both food and nonfood poverty thresholds. Although one cannot completely eliminate the value judgments inherent in the construction of poverty thresholds, this model helps to make the ad hoc assumptions that are generally made more justifiable.
