Is the Multidimensional Poverty Index robust to different weights?

Abstract:

In 2010, the United Nations Development Programme Human Development Report and OPHI released an international Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) that reflects multiple deprivations in education, health and living standard that people face at the same time. How robust is this index to the different choices made in its design? This brief presents the results of tests that show that the MPI rankings are robust to a range of plausible changes in weights.
