mpitb a toolbox for multidimensional poverty indices (MPI). The Stata package
mpitb comprises several subcommands to facilitate specification, estimation, and analyses of MPIs. The toolbox offers several benefits to researchers, analysts and practitioners working on MPIs.
Work in progress
mpitb is now available on the SSC archive. This toolbox facilitates the estimation and analysis of multidimensional poverty indices in Stata. The toolbox comes with comfortable estimation and storing routines, a streamlined workflow, several convenience functions and some low-level tools for programmers.
I’m a Serra Húnter fellow (professor lector) at the University of Barcelona, Faculty of Economics and Business. I received my PhD in economics from TU Dortmund in Germany, where I previously studied economics and sociology. I’m also a Research Associate with the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) at the University of Oxford, affiliated with the Center for Demographic Studies (CED) at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, a member of Equalitas, a network of Spain-based researchers working on poverty and inequality, and a Fellow of the Global Labor Organization.
Broadly speaking, I’m interested in questions about conceptualization, measurement and analysis of human well-being and related inequalities. More specifically, I’m currently working on multidimensional poverty measurement and analysis, subjective well-being, and the capability approach.
In my work with OPHI, I’m co-leading the estimations of the global multidimensional poverty index (MPI) among other things.
