The application of multidimensional poverty measures is proliferating, in part due to the emphasis in Goal 1 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on ending poverty in all its forms and dimensions. This chapter first traces the emergence of a priority for non-monetary poverty measures in key texts that considered and then set out the SDGs. It then outlines some vital and feasible research questions on a subset of fascinating empirical topics on counting-based multidimensional measures. The topics covered here relate to the SDGs’ focus on measuring the multidimensional poverty of men, women and children. Building on the existing literature, fascinating questions remain in terms of measurement design (the selection of dimensions, indicators, cut-offs and weights), the analysis of multidimensional poverty measures, their application to child poverty and their implementation using gendered data. In each of these areas, it is expected that significant breakthroughs are possible.
