Subjective poverty thresholds in the Philippines
Subjective poverty thresholds in the Philippines are derived from a 2003 household perception survey data set. The thresholds are computed using data on the minimum income question and actual income from the survey of 1,200 households. The estimated thresholds are shown to be much higher than the official poverty thresholds and more in line with the United Nation’s millennium development goal threshold of US$ 1 per day.
