Abstract

This paper developed an improvised methodology to measure poverty reduction for various categories, namely countries, regions, sub-groups just to name a few. To this end, first, using mathematical expositions an index known as Basic Needs Deficiency Index(BNDI)is formulated. Second, this paper shows how the index can be used in empirical works, which in many respects are more convenient than the one developed by other researchers in this area. Finally, by ranking and classifying the index, the status of poverty of a country can be easily be gauged and hence mitigated.
