Exploring Multidimensional Poverty in China


OPHI Briefing 34

Multidimensional Poverty in China affects nearly 5.5 per cent of the population, with variation across regions and by social groups. Multidimensionally poor people are not necessarily income poor and vice versa. This briefing paper presents and analyses the Global MPI estimations for China using 2012 data. It aims to explore in a preliminary way how the Global MPI may vary across different groups and regions.
