mpitb: A toolbox for multidimensional poverty indices


The Stata package mpitb comprises several subcommands to facilitate specification, estimation, and analysis of MPIs and supports the popular Alkire–Foster framework to multidimensional poverty measurement. mpitb offers several benefits to researchers, analysts, and practitioners working on MPIs, including substantial time savings (for example, due to lower data-management and programming requirements) while allowing for a more comprehensive analysis at the same time. Moreover, the toolbox encourages reporting of standard errors or confidence intervals.
