The joint OPHI and UNDP global MPI report, Global Multidimensional Poverty Index 2021 – Unmasking disparities by ethnicity, caste and gender, presents the key findings of the global MPI 2021. The analyses:
- Provide estimates on multidimensional poverty for 109 developing countries (with data from surveys ranging 2009–2019/2020);
- Include trends over time for 80 countries, for a range of periods between 2000–2019/2020;
- Present multidimensional poverty estimates disaggregated by ethnicity and caste for 41 countries to identify who is – and how people are – being left behind;
- Explore intrahousehold analysis with a gender lens;
- Reveal how multidimensional poverty could amplify the impacts of COVID-19 shocks, hurting education, employment and livelihood.
