Paper Title :
Proxy Means Testing: An Alternative Method For Poverty Assessment

Author :Surapone Ptanawanit

Article Citation :Surapone Ptanawanit , (2016 ) " Proxy Means Testing: An Alternative Method For Poverty Assessment " , International Journal of Management and Applied Science (IJMAS) , pp. 144-149, Volume-2,Issue-12, Special Issue-1

Abstract : This article discusses the experiment of a proxy means test for assessing poverty levels in Thailand. It explains why a proxy means test instead of a conventional income or assets test is more applicable to a developing country like Thailand where income data are rather inaccurate. The main point of the article is its discussion in details on how the study develops the proxy means test. Apart from suggesting a way by which poverty can be measured by the proxy means test, the article also explains how this instrument can assess clients’ eligibility for social assistance benefit. Keywords- Poverty Assessment, Eligibility Assessment, Proxy Means Test, Social Assistance.
