Global MPI Country Briefings 2020

The global MPI Country Briefings present the country-specific results for the 107 countries in this year’s global MPI.

Each profile includes:

  • the level of multidimensional poverty, its incidence and intensity;
  • comparisons of the global MPI incidence with $1.90 a day and national monetary measures;
  • breakdowns by indicators;
  • disaggregation by urban/rural areas and subnational regions; and
  • studies of the distribution of deprivation scores that together make up the intensity of poverty across multidimensionally poor people.

Of the countries analysed, 98 have poverty data at the subnational level, covering 1,279 regions, and this information is shared and mapped.

Changes over Time Country Briefings 2020

For the first time we offer a second series of Country Briefings on the study of poverty trends for the countries included in the Changes over Time analysis.

These briefings explore harmonized trends (indicated by MPIT) in poverty between two time points studied in each country. They cover 80 countries within the global MPI. Detailed results are presented in Table 6 and defined in the MPI Methodological Note 50.

Each profile includes:

  • the change in the MPIT, incidence, and intensity of multidimensional poverty;
  • changes in censored headcount ratios for each indicators;
  • absolute and relative changes in MPIT and incidence across subnational regions;
  • absolute reduction in MPIT across subnational regions;
  • absolute reduction in MPIT across age groups; and
  • the contribution of each indicator to MPIT in national, urban, and rural areas across the years.

This is the first global analysis of trends in multidimensional poverty covering five billion people. Find out more about the Changes over Time analysis in the MPI Methodological Note 50.
