Anila Nanaj


The focus of this study is on discussing how and how many MPI dimensions and indicators exceed the limits of classical measurements of poverty, creates the possibilities of measuring and comparing multidimensional poverty. Second, this paper calls for attention, Multidimensional Poverty Index MPI as an added value in efforts of poverty measurement. Multidimensional Poverty Index helps to analyze the spectrum of poverty, understanding of sustainable development emergency, as well as it is a great help for reading poverty phenomenon on a three-dimensional aspect and under the sub-meaning of 10 different indicators. Third, this study offers further comparative analyses of MPI Albania and Eastern Balkan countries. Fourth it contrasts, comprehensive indexes are generated and applied but doesn’t mean their conclusions are translated (converted) into comprehensive policies as well. The indicators and the techniques for poverty measurement in Albania are the same as those in other countries, but policies and results vary. Finally, we argue the measures chosen to use in poverty measurement, of course, can lead or mislead towards the process of policy making due to the great practical relevance of measurement methodologies.

Keywords: poverty measurement, multidimensional poverty index (MPI), deprivation, the incidence of poverty.
