Likely Channels of Spillover of Poverty in India: An Exploratory Analysis
MetadataShow full item record
Though poverty occurs in all the states of India, is it a coincidence that the three states of India: Uttar Pradesh; Bihar; and Madhya Pradesh all sharing borders with Uttar Pradesh are low income, less developed and high poverty states. Though poverty in India is much explored in many aspects, it remains a puzzle that these three states of northern India besides sharing borders also share poverty, both income and non-income. This study using district level data examines poverty spillover among the states in northern India.
