(2005), we considered three scenarios for the value of poverty aversion parameter [alpha] ([alpha]=0, [alpha]=1, [alpha]=2) where; FGT equation with [alpha] value equals to zero will calculate the proportion of population under the poverty line or it may also be called the headcount ratio; while FGT equation with [alpha] value equals 1 will calculate the poverty depth or the amount through which poor family is lower than the poverty line; The last scenario, FGT equation with [alpha]=2 calculates the poverty gap squared index or the severity of poverty.It determines the degree of poverty.

FGT proportion was associated with ER positivity (p=0.009), but no significant differences between FGT proportion and PR positivity were found (p=0.256).
La identificacion de los individuos pobres permite una segunda etapa de agregacion que compara a la poblacion que es pobre multidimensionalmente con el total de la poblacion; de esta manera se obtiene la incidencia de pobreza H o headcount ratio que tiene igual interpretacion a su par en el FGT, es decir, el porcentaje de la poblacion que es considerada pobre en relacion al total poblacional.
Con el empleo de los indicadores de FGT se consideraron tres escenarios: el primero con la eliminacion de las trasferencias del programa, el segundo con el incremento en 10 por ciento de estas y el tercero con la reduccion de 10 por ciento en ellas.
Using the case of Guangxi, one of the poorest provinces in China, this article aims to (1) assess the FGT poverty indices, (2) quantify the relationships between rural transition indicators and FGT poverty metrics, and (3) analyze the individual influences and joint influences of the components of rural transition on the FGT poverty indices.
This methodology I was happy to develop with James Foster and therefore, very naturally, it is an extension of Foster-Greer-Thorbecke (FGT) set of indices.
Even the most established poverty measure by Foster, Greer and Thorbecke (FGT, 1984) evaluates the poverty status of households in a static sense and ignores the dynamic aspects.
To overcome this problem of multidimensional headcount, Alkire and Foster (2007) propose the dimension adjusted FGT measures, given by [M.sub.[alpha]](y,z) = [mu](g.sup.[alpha](k)) for a [greater than or equal to] 0.
En las dos secciones siguientes se examina la pobreza tomando en cuenta cuatro indicadores muy utilizados en los estudios sobre pobreza, los indicadores FGT (Foster, Greer y 'Thorbecke, 1984) y el indicador de Sen.
