This paper is concerned with the decomposition of change in poverty into growth and inequality components. A new decomposition procedure is derived using an axiomatic approach. This methodology is applied to explain changes in poverty in Thailand during the years 1988, 1990, 1992 and 1994.

    • ...The first exercise, following Kakwani (2000) and Mazumdar and Son (2002), decomposes the change in incidence of poverty over two timepoints in terms of pure growth effect (holding inequality constant), inequality effect (holding growth constant) and population shift effect...
    • ...Decomposing the change in the poverty index into a growth and distribution effect was initiated by Kakwani and Subbarao (1990) and Jain and Tendulkar (1990) while quite a few alternative decomposition methods have been developed subsequently, for example by Datt and Ravallion (1992), Kakwani (2000) and Mazumdar and Son (2002) and a synthesis of these methods are given in appendix...
    • ...But, as it may be noted in the appendix, the problems in Datt and Ravallion (1992) were addressed in the methodology developed by Kakwani (2000) and Mazumdar and Son (2002) and, hence, the present study follows the exact decomposition methodology developed by the later)...
