Authors:Hassoun, Nicole
Subramanian, S.

Abstract:This paper demonstrates that the property of 'replication invariance', generally considered to be an innocuous requirement for the extension of fixed-population poverty comparisons to variable-population contexts, is incompatible with other plausible variable- and fixed-population axioms.
Subjects:variable populations
fixed populations
replication invariance
population focus
income focus
impossibility result
