Equivalence scale and poverty assessment in a poor country

Equivalence scale and poverty assessment in a poor country

Discussion Paper School of Economics, University of the Philippines ( 9204): 21pp.

The paper uses household expenditure patterns to estimate equivalence scales for the cost of children in rural and urban areas of the Philippines. Data for the study are based on the Philippine Family Income and Expenditure Survey (FIES) conducted in 1985. Simple models of equivalent scales are considered, including the Engel model and Rothbarth's model, in the course of developing a model for discussion. The paper employs equivalent scale estimates in determining poverty aggregates.
