How valid are the estimates of trends in rural poverty?



How valid are the estimates of trends in rural poverty?



Economic and Political Weekly 17(26): A/54-A/62



The article argues that the incidence of poverty that has been stressed by much of the literature cannot be taken at face value. Since a relationship is sought to be established between "trends in rural poverty" and "agricultural growth" with consequent implications for policy, it is all the more important to be clear whether estimates of poverty and trends in it are correct.
