Subsidized housing in the United States is administered by federal, state and local agencies to provide subsidized rental assistance for low-income households. Public housing is priced much below the market rate, allowing people to live in more convenient locations rather than move away from the city in search of lower rents. In most federally-funded rental assistance programs, the tenants. Watts and all black-majority areas in Los Angeles were put under the curfew. All residents outside of their homes in the affected areas after pm were subject to arrest. Eventually, nearly 3, people were arrested, primarily for curfew violations.

Poverty Solutions works to promote more in-depth, impactful, and solutions-oriented coverage of poverty-related issues. Tune in to this virtual series and learn more about why it’s so important to get the poverty narrative right -- from exploring new storytelling strategies to translating complex research for deeper public engagement.   Among them, Watts' () poverty measure, which is directly related to Theil's () inequality measure, has all the desirable properties of a poverty measure. This measure is given by: W = [ [integral]0] (Ln (z) - Ln (x))f (x)dx (4) which takes into account the severity of deprivation suffered by the poor.

The Watts Riot, which raged for six days and resulted in more than forty million dollars worth of property damage, was both the largest and costliest urban rebellion of the Civil Rights era. The riot spurred from an incident on Aug when Marquette Frye, a young African American motorist, was pulled over and arrested by Lee W. Minikus.

Under lognormality assumption, we show that the Watts’poverty index, one of the major axiomatically sound poverty index, exhibits additional interesting prop- erties. It can be expressedas the product of an inequality index by the cumulating incidence of poverty.

We give its explicit formula and present sensitivity and limit analyses. Abstract Under lognormality assumption, we derive the parametric formula of the Watts measure, one of the main axiomatically sound poverty measures. In these conditions, we derive new properties of the Watts measure, its sensitivity to distribution parameters and its parametric standard error.

The head-count index, the most popular poverty indicator, is the proportion of poor people in the whole population, [0] [equivalent to] [[integral]0] d[mu](y), (11) where [mu] is the cdf of living standards y, and z is the poverty line.

The Watts index is also relatively easy to apply. This paper complements the Watts index with a simple axiomatic characterization. The Watts index is the unique poverty index possessing those basic properties if a poverty index is perceived as the absolute amount of social welfare loss due to poverty.

student who had worked in axiomatic social choice theory and whose dissertation under the direction of Mukul Majumdar would analyze Theil’s decomposable inequality measure. In this paper, we explore in detail the properties of inequality reduction and pro-poorness, using the Watts poverty index and Gini inequality index, when income growth takes place within each of.

The Watts index has the property that it is equally sensitive to growth in all percentiles below the poverty line. This is why Ravallion and Chen () argue that a good measure of pro-poor growth is the average (across all percentiles) growth rate of those below the poverty line, i.e., the average growth rate of incomes of the poor.

A poverty reduction failure index is a measure of the extent of inability of a society to reduce its poverty level. This paper develops an ordering for ranking alternative income distributions in.

The new poverty threshold for rural areas was fixed at Rs per month or Rs 32 per day. For urban areas, it was fixed at Rs per month or Rs 47 per day. Under this methodology, the population below the poverty line in was million (% of the population) and that in was million (% of the population).
