Apablaza, Mauricio, and Gaston Yalonetzky (2011). "Measuring the dynamics of multiple deprivations among children: the cases of Andhra Pradesh, Ethiopia, Peru and Vietnam" Paper presented at the 8th annual conference of the HDCA, 6-8 September 2011, the Hague, the Netherlands.

This paper documents changes in the joint incidence of multiple deprivations during childhood using a novel decomposition of changes in the AlkireFoster family of multidimensional poverty measures, suitable for panel data. Changes in the adjusted headcount ratio are decomposed into changes in the multidimensional headcount and changes in the average number of deprivations among the poor. Each of the latter in turn are further decomposed into changes in relevant statistics including the transition probabilities of moving into and out of multidimensional poverty
