PMT-based social registries Measuring income and poverty using Proxy Means Tests OVERVIEW This%document%will%serveas%anintroductiontoproxy%means%testing(PMT).%File Size: KB. The measurement of per capita daily expenditures relative to a monetary poverty line, also known as ‘sophisticated means testing’, is the most widely used approach to poverty assessment. Abstract: This paper examines how a proxy means test might work in targeting social programs. The term "proxy means test" is used to describe a situation where information on household or individual characteristics correlated with welfare levels is used in a formal algorithm to proxy household income, welfare or need.

The Monetary Approach has led to some useless policies that tried to attack poverty by attacking effects instead of causes of poverty. Hence, these policies have had little or no effect, and today poverty and inequality seem to be defeating most of the efforts of development agencies and governments. Proxy-means tests (PMTs) are popular for poverty-targeting with imperfect information. In a widely-used version, a regression for log consumption calibrates a PMT score based on covariates, which is then implemented for targeting out-of-sample. The performance of various PMT methods is assessed using data for nine African countries. poverty and social exclusion by using a portfolio of indicators (Marlier, Atkinson, Cantillon, & Nolan, ). In policy analysis, however, the effect of programs and policies on poverty is typically evaluated using either a monetary or (rather rarely) a non-monetary poverty proxy (see for instance Figari. The poverty line determines the threshold of income or expenditure, separating poor and non-poor people. Most countries use multiple poverty lines to capture monetary versus non-monetary measures of poverty, and how people’s and household incomes are distributed around the poverty line, hence the determination of relative poverty and absolute.
