Multidimensional Poverty of Farm and Herder Households in Tibetan Areas of Gansu Province, China

This paper measures the multidimensional poverty situation of farm and herder households located in the Tibetan areas of Gansu Province in China by using the Alkire-Foster method. Twelve indicators are included in the multidimensional poverty indicator system, and six different methods are used to calculate the weight of each indicator. Results indicate the adult family members received formal education (x3), the labor availability (x2), the home toilet type (x7), the self-health assessment (x1), and the school-age children drop out (x4) are the major determinants of poverty.
