Abstract: This paper firstly builds a second-order pro-poor growth function according the meaning and properties proposed by Duclos(2008).Secondly,it proves that the function has seven fine properties proposed by Duclos(2008) and other relevant papers,which makes up for the lack of proof of properties of methods that were put forward by previous literatures.Finally,the paper uses the function to find out if China and its provinces can be judged second-order pro-poor,and compares the results to the first-order pro-poor’s judgment.Compared with the method of judging first-order pro-poor growth,the function covers broader pro-poor situations.Furthermore,it is simple and easy to operate,and overcomes the defect of preceding methods whose data requirement is too stringent,the data sometimes even being unable to get.
