As a result, poverty measures will be misleading if household resource allocation mechanisms tend to favors some members at the cost of others. This book is an outcome of a research project on Bangladesh that made an attempt to study the dynamics of household resource allocation closely. Based on a carefully designed and implemented household survey, covering both rural and urban areas, empirical assessments undertaken in various chapters of this volume deal with such issues as potential underestimation of poverty incidence due to the household –level rather than individual-specific focus.
