Global MPI Country Briefings

Country Briefings from previous years

Country Briefings 2021

The global MPI Country Briefings present the country-specific results for the 109 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;
  • studies of the distribution of deprivation scores that together make up the intensity of poverty across multidimensionally poor people;
  • the harmonised level and change of multidimensional poverty, its incidence and intensity; and,
  • changes in MPI by subnational region.

Of the countries analysed, 100 have poverty data at the subnational level, covering 1,291 regions, and this information is shared and mapped
