  2. 2. WHAT IS POVERTY?  Poverty is the state of one who lacks a certain amount of material possessions or money.  People all over the world are dying because they cannot afford the necessary resources they need to survive.  Absolute poverty or destitution refers to the deprivation of basic human needs, which commonly includes food, water, sanitation, clothing, shelter, health care and education.  Relative poverty is defined contextually as economic inequality in the location or society in which people live.
  4. 4. WHAT DOES POVERTY MEAN?  Lack of shelter.  Lack of food.  Lack of education.  Lack of basic transportation.  Lack of ability to pay off debts.  Lack of good health and medical infrastructure.
  5. 5. HOW IS POVERTY MEASURED?  When measured, poverty may be absolute or relative poverty.  Absolute poverty refers to a set standard which is consistent over time and between countries. An example of an absolute measurement would be the percentage of the population eating less food than is required to sustain the human body.  Relative poverty, in contrast, views poverty as socially defined and dependent on social context. One relative measurement would be to compare the total wealth of the poorest one-third of the population with the total wealth of the richest 1% of the population.
  6. 6. HOW IS POVERTY MEASURED ? CONTD…  The main poverty line used in the OECD and the European Union is a relative poverty measure based on "economic distance", a level of income usually set at 60% of the median household income.  Both absolute and relative poverty measures are usually based on a person's yearly income and frequently take no account of total wealth. Some people argue that this ignores a key component of economic well-being.  Economic aspects of poverty focus on material needs, typically including the necessities of daily living, such as food, clothing, shelter, or safe drinking water. Poverty in this sense may be understood as a condition in which a person or community is lacking in the basic needs for a minimum standard of well-being and life, particularly as a result of a persistent lack of income.
