2011 Poverty Maps

Explore global multidimensional poverty around the world using OPHI’s mapping tools. They show how poverty differs by country (a darker colour indicates a higher MPI, and therefore greater poverty), and within countries, according to OPHI’s analysis of sub-national poverty in 66 countries.

This new section of the site now features world poverty maps that show sub-national breakdowns of MPI poverty, and interactive maps to help you navigate through the world according to the MPI. You can choose to explore the world by either the MPI as a whole or by individual dimensions and indicators of MPI poverty. You can also see the intensity and incidence of poverty (the MPI’s two component parts) individually, allowing you to zoom in even closer and explore the character of poverty.
