Abstract

Purely monetary approach to poverty measurement does not provide a true picture of deprivations or wellbeingness of households. Aspects based poverty measurement using multiple dimensions of deprivation gives a more complete picture of poverty. In this investigation, the Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) has been used to study deprivations experienced in multiple dimensions of drinking water, sanitation and housing facilities in urban Haryana. For estimation of the poverty across the urban areas of Haryana, household level secondary data from 69th round of NSSO survey on selected indicators of drinking water, sanitation and housing facilities have been used. Based on MPI estimates the urban households in the district of Mewat have been found to be most deprived in reference to drinking water, sanitation and housing facilities in urban Haryana followed by Fatehabad, Rohtak, Mahendragarh, Jhajjar and Ambala.
