No 30, Global Poverty Monitoring Technical Note Series from The World Bank

Abstract: This note presents the 5th edition of the World Bank’s Multidimensional Poverty Measure (MPM) database, based on country data from the Global Monitoring Database (GMD) as of April 2023. The MPM captures the percentage of households in a country that are deprived in three dimensions of well-being: monetary poverty, education, and basic infrastructure services. Monetary poverty is now measured using the International Poverty Line at $2.15 per person per day in 2017 PPP. The latest data provides estimates for 121 economies in the GMD circa 2018 and revises estimates published in October 2022. An update to the accompanying dashboard allows users to visualize the latest MPM data and modify the weights used when aggregating indicators in the MPM headcount ratio.
