Abstract: 

Identifying the poor is the first step in poverty alleviation program. In order to do that, the most important issue, is application of proper index for measuring all aspects of the poverty. In this study, using FGT index, we investigate the severity of poverty, regarding to principal occupation of household heads in the rural areas of Iran. The results show that after non-working households, in which severity of poverty is so high, primarily self-employed households in agricultural activities, experience the worst situation when compared to the others.
Besides, households being in the eastern region of the country are more likely to be poor, with the highest poverty intensity.
