Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below :
Poverty measurement is an unsettled issue, both conceptually and methodologically. Since poverty is a process as well as an outcome: many come out of it while others may be falling into it. The net effect of these two parallel processes is a proportion commonly identified as the ‘head count ratio’, but these ratios hide the fundamental dynamism that characterizes poverty in practice. The most recent poverty re estimates by an expert group has also missed the crucial dynamism. In a study conducted on 13.000 households which represented the entire country in 199394 and again on 2004-05, it was found that in the ten-year period 18.2% rural population moved out of poverty whereas another 22.1% Cell into it over this period. This net increase of about four percentage points was seen to have a considerable variation across states and regions.
