Abstract

The choice of a proper approach to individual welfare measurement is an important element of poverty measurement process. The aim of the paper is to develop simple measures of individual welfare. Two alternative approaches to individual welfare estimation by direct method are used. The first approach is based on the furnishings of households by goods of long-term consumption. The second approach is based on the structure of households’ expenses. The indices of households’ furnishings and expenses structure are proposed. The levels of poorest households’ welfare in Eastern Slovakia (mainly of Roma ethnic origin) are then compared. The sample consists of 170 households from Eastern Slovakia participating in the ETP Slovakia microsavings program. The values of indices are in close relation to equivalent disposable income. The proposed indices may serve as supplementary measures of individual welfare of households
