Definition: Elasticity of Propoor Growth

Elasticity of Propoor Growth - "the percentage increase in the consumption growth of the poor/percentage increase in the consumption growth of the nonpoor. If the elasticity is greater than 1, then the process is propoor, if less than 1 antipoor (Bhalla 2002)." - source: Economic Development 4th Edition by E. Wayne Nafziger
