Dans cette Note nous proposons un estimateur de lʼindice de pauvreté de Foster, Greer et Thorbecke. Lʼestimateur est construit à lʼaide du noyau de Parzen Rosenblatt. La convergence de lʼestimateur est étudiée et des simulations proposées. Pour citer cet article : G. Dia, C. R. Acad. Sci. Paris, Ser. I 346 (2008).

In this Note we propose an estimator of Foster, Greer and Thorbecke class of measures   where z is the poverty line,   the density of the income distribution and the so-called poverty aversion. The estimator is constructed with Parzen–Rosenblatt kernel. Uniform almost sure consistency and uniform mean square consistency are established. A simulation study indicates that this new estimator performs well in finite samples. To cite this article: G. Dia, C. R. Acad. Sci. Paris, Ser. I 346 (2008).
