Zou Wei Fang Yingfeng  
With a "Capability Approach" and data from CHNS(1989-2009),this paper chooses three dimensions-income,education and quality of life to measure China's multidimensional poverty dynamically.The outcome shows that:(1)Versus single income poverty,poverty status from multidimensional measurement is much more severe and fluctuating,and the poor is vulnerable to external shock,especially those of education poverty;(2)Although income poverty converges between rural and urban,rural multidimensional poverty gives an over 80% contribution nationwide,and multidimensional poverty diverges between rural and urban;(3)In the case of equal indicator weight,the multidimensional poverty index declines quickly and smoothly as lapse of time,where bettering the quality of life gives the biggest contribution to the improvement of multidimensional poverty;(4)In regard to the influencing factors of external circumstance factors,multidimensional poverty of eastern declines faster than other regions,and householder's character and the number of labors in a household both have remarkable influence.After studying the causes of multidimensional poverty,the paper discusses the policy alternatives of multidimensional poverty reduction.
