The literature on poverty evolved rapidly over the last two decades. Particularly, the body of work in the area of the measurement Introduction of poverty grew substantially following Sen's (1976) seminal paper. We can identify broadly two aspects of the body of the literature that are currently popular. One is the literature on the measurement of poverty and the other the analysis of determinants or correlates of poverty with an attempt or desire to set up causalities.
