dc.description.abstractIn this paper we examine the mathematical relationship between growthand distributional change on absolute (i.e. percentage point) changesin FGT poverty measures assuming a log-normal distribution. We alsotest the empirical relationship of the derived semi-elasticities of growthand distributional change on poverty and find them to explain changesin poverty very well (in fact, better than a related study by Bourguignon(2003) that studied the 'regular' growth elasticity of povertyreduction). This relationship will allow us to predict where growthand distributional change will have the largest (absolute) impact onpoverty reduction, which is very useful for predicting and analyzingprogress towards meeting MDG1.en_US
