Rio group compendium of good practices introduction

It covers two main distinctive purposes: (academic) institution

it explains the content of the compendium, making clear the Rio Group limitations and its scope of countries coverage

it presents a conceptual and historical approach of poverty

Rio Group - Compendium of Good Practices Introduction


Rio group compendium of good practices chapter 2 absolute poverty

In this chapter Canada, USA and ECLAC experiences are well covered

It is necessary to work better the aspects of income and consumption showing the differences between the notion of expenditure and consumption.

As the structure of the chapter should be representative of the majority of international practices, a “box” is being prepared relating the most important experiences.

Rio Group - Compendium of Good Practices Chapter 2 - Absolute Poverty


This chapter gives a good framework about Basic Needs practices although the experiences are mostly related to Latin American countries.

An international approach will be added.

As a complementary approach, a “box” will be included with some practices based on multi-dimensional indicators such as HDI.

Rio Group - Compendium of Good Practices Chapter 3 - UNB / DI (Unsatisfied Basic Needs / Deprivation Indicators)


Rio group compendium of good practices chapter 4 integrated approach

The draft we have is specific of the British experience (even though it is an official measurement in Ireland)

It will be included details of how income and deprivation indicators are combined to measure poverty by Ireland and UK

The method should be described in more general terms

Some steps of the deprivation index will be more clarified

Others experiences must be added such as Kaztman y Boltvinik as well as the World Bank proposal to measure income integrating the information of surveys and Census

Rio Group - Compendium of Good Practices Chapter 4 - Integrated Approach


Rio group compendium of good practices chapter 5 relative poverty

This chapter describes mainly the EUROSTAT practices (even though it is an official measurement in Ireland)

Other practices will be included

Calculations, similarities, differences, options and challenges comments will be more developed

Rio Group - Compendium of Good Practices Chapter 5 - Relative Poverty


Rio group compendium of good practices chapter 6 subjective poverty

The draft of this chapter it been done by ECLAC (even though it is an official measurement in Ireland)

It is mostly used as a complementary method to objective and relative measurement

In this sense, this method has a different status in relation to the others, since it is not officially used by any country

Rio Group - Compendium of Good Practices Chapter 6 - Subjective Poverty


Rio group compendium of good practices conclusions

There will be 2 or 3 parts. (even though it is an official measurement in Ireland)

The idea is to establish a connection between methods and policies and international comparisons.

ECLAC is in charge of the strategies of information.
