This chapter attempts to conceptualize chronic poverty and hence also poverty dynamics from a non-income perspective and then illustrate ways to explore this topic empirically. Section 4.2 discusses the potentials as well as limitations of conceptualizing chronic poverty in a non-income perspective. Section 4.3 presents a first approach to measure empirically chronic non-income poverty, focusing on critical functionings related to health and education, using a panel survey of Vietnam from 1992/3 and 1997/8. Section 4.4 shows the results of this application. Section 4.5 concludes with highlighting open issues and suggestions for further research.

Keywords:   chronic poverty, poverty dynamics, non-income perspective, health, education, Vietnam
