In general usage, this distinction is usually ignored and the expression ‘poverty incidence’ or ‘incidence of poverty’ frequently refers to the proportion of poor people in a certain population at a certain point in time (which strictly speaking in epidemiological terms would be poverty prevalence), and not to the proportion of people who became poor over a certain time period (which strictly speaking in epidemiological terms would be incidence). The expression ‘poverty prevalence’ or ‘prevalence of poverty’ is also sometimes, although much less frequently, found but refers to the same concept as when incidence is used.
We know that n11 people are deprived in both dimensions and the sum of n11 + n01 + n10 is the number of people deprived in at least one dimension. These values correspond to the joint distribution of deprivations. Consider now the case of four dimensions and four people, to see how valuable information can be added by the joint distribution. 2 presents the deprivation matrix g 0 of two hypothetical distributions, X and X . Such a matrix presents joint distributions of deprivations in a compact way and is used regularly throughout this book.
For simplicity, we assume the unidimensional variable xi to be income. Building on previous poverty indices including Sen (1976) and Thon (1979), the FGT family of indices is based on the normalized income gap—called the ‘poverty gap’ in the unidimensional poverty literature—which is defined as follows: given the income distribution x, one can obtain a censored income distribution x˜ by replacing the values above the poverty line zU by the poverty line value zU itself and leaving the other values unchanged.
