Abstract: The changes in multidimensional poverty are analysed for the states of the north-eastern region in general, and Tripura in particular, from 2000 to 2015. Special emphasis is laid on the household characteristics in Tripura and the rural–urban, gender, social, and religion subgroups. The value of the multidimensional poverty index fell by 4.6% during the study period and the proportion of the multidimensionally poor by 1.7% per annum. The reduction in the MPI and the incidence of poverty was significantly higher in the rural areas of Tripura considering the social and religious subgroups.
