The Poverty Equivalent Growth Rate (PEGR) is calculated by multiplying the Pro-poor Growth Index by the Actual Growth Rates (GDP).
The Pro-Poor Growth Index (PPGI) and the Poverty Equivalent Growth Rate (PEGR) are taken which covers the magnitude of growth as well as the benefits passed on to the poor in terms of economic growth.
The finding suggests that the government should focus on the Poverty Equivalent Growth Rate (PEGR) rather than the Actual Growth Rate.
Theoretical Basis for Poverty Equivalent Growth Rate (PEGR)2
(15) Kakwani, Khandker and Son (2002) note that the pro-poor measure proposed by Ravallion and Chen (2003) (they comment on an earlier version of the paper)--which we used in this paper--is the PEGR obtained from the Watts index.

We may now introduce the idea of poverty equivalent growth rate (PEGR).
The proposed PEGR controls how equitable growth rate is.
which shows that the PEGR is the weighted average of the growth rates of income at each percentile point, with the weight depending on the poverty measure used.
When [alpha] = 1, we get PEGR for the poverty gap ratio as
The PEGR for the Watts poverty measure is obtained by substituting P(z,x)=Ln(z)-Ln(x) in (14) as
This section presents a methodology to estimate the PEGR by utilising unit record data available for any two periods.
