Dataset Notes
NOTES a. Not all indicators were available for all countries; caution should thus be used in cross-country comparisons. Where data are missing, indicator weights are adjusted to total 100%. For details on countries missing data, see Alkire and others (2011) and Alkire, Conconi and Roche (2012). b. D indicates data are from Demographic and Health Surveys, M indicates data are from Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys, W indicates data are from World Health Surveys and N indicates data are from national surveys. c. Data refer to the most recent year available during the period specified. d. Lower bound estimate. e. Upper bound estimate. f. Refers to only part of the country. DEFINITIONS Multidimensional Poverty Index: Percentage of the population that is multidimensionally poor adjusted by the intensity of the deprivations. See Technical note 4 for details on how the Multidimensional Poverty Index is calculated. Multidimensional poverty headcount: Percentage of the population with a weighted deprivation score of at least 33 percent. Intensity of deprivation of multidimensional poverty: Average percentage of deprivation experienced by people in multidimensional poverty. Population vulnerable to poverty: Percentage of the population at risk of suffering multiple deprivations—that is, those with a deprivation score of 20–33 percent. Population in severe poverty: Percentage of the population in severe multidimensional poverty—that is, those with a deprivation score of 50 percent or more. Contribution of deprivation to overall poverty: Percentage of the Multidimensional Poverty Index attributed to deprivations in each dimension. Population below PPP $1.25 a day: Percentage of the population living below the international poverty line $1.25 (in purchasing power parity terms) a day. Population below national poverty line: Percentage of the population living below the national poverty line, which is the poverty line deemed appropriate for a country by its authorities. National estimates are based on population-weighted subgroup estimates from household surveys. MAIN DATA SOURCES Columns 1 and 2: Calculated from various household surveys, including ICF Macro Demographic and Health Surveys, United Nations Children's Fund Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys and World Health Organization World Health Surveys conducted between 2000 and 2010. Columns 3–10: Calculated based on data on household deprivations in education, health and living standards from various household surveys as listed in column 1. Columns 11 and 12: World Bank (2012a).
