It is not a surprise that The individual Deprivation Measure is not included in Lin Yang's Inventory of Composite Measures of Human Progress, as this inventory only includes 5 measures classified under the entry Poverty, three of them carried out by UNDP.
Imitating Thomas, I dare to send all of you two attachments containing chapters 4 and 5 of a draft book on which I am still working. Chapter 4 contains a Typology of Poverty Measurement Methods, with emphasis on combined (i.e. containing both income and direct indicators of deprivation) multidimensional methods. Chapter 5 is called Principles of Multidimensional Poverty. These principles I have applied for my IPMM (Integrated Poverty Measurement Method) which I developed at the beginning of the nineties and have been applying (and improving) since then. This method is explained in the last section of chapter 4. The typology contained has not (yet) been actualised to include Alkire-Santos method now used by UNDP.
I beg all of you to send me commentaries, suggestions, critiques that will be of great help in preparing the last version of these chapters.
