The most used measure of multidimensional poverty globally

As of 2023, there are approaching 40 countries across the world with official national MPIs. National MPIs are multidimensional poverty measures that use the AF method. Each national MPI in use around the world is built using indicators, weights and cutoffs that are tailored to its local context and definitions of poverty.  Primarily, national MPIs are created to guide efficient and effective policies in poverty reduction by providing detailed information on the breadth and depth of poverty across a population. This information complements existing monetary poverty measures.
