World Bank Workshop: How to Measure Poverty Over Time
Workshop: How to Measure Poverty Over Time, 2–4:30 p.m., Thursday, June 14, MC2-800, World Bank, Washington D.C.
People often move in and out of poverty, but current poverty measures don’t account for past poverty episodes. Yet the sequencing, severity and duration of those episodes are bound to affect the chances of people escaping poverty in the future. New research addressing these shortcomings, including the challenge of measuring trends in poverty more broadly, is being published in a special issue of the Journal of Economic Inequality, the leading journal on poverty and inequality measurement.
A workshop will be held June 14 at the World Bank headquarters in Washington to discuss the new findings, as well as its policy implications. The event is open to the public. Participants should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and organization/affiliation. The event will also be Web cast. For more information, please visit this website.
