Poverty Measures: Lunchtime Seminar, Professor Mary S. Morgan

Details

Professor Mary Morgan is visiting Sydney as part of the Society's Eminent Speaker Series, 2016

This talk is entitled : Poverty Measures: Aggregating Up to Get Back Down Again

Abstract: Measurements good for scientific purposes are not necessarily those good for policy purposes. There are trade-offs or tensions between precise measurement and accurate measurement, and between different forms of statistics usable for different purposes. Issues of aggregation and valuation are key for any possibilities of policy intervention.
