Angola MPI

MPI originally introduced: 2020

Latest MPI results: Angola MPI 2020

The latest Angola MPI report was published in 2020 and was based on data from the Multiple Health Indicators Survey (IIMS) 2015–2016. 

The report was prepared by the National Institute of Statistics or Departamento de Informação e Difusão (INE), in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and OPHI. 

Previous results

Before developing a national MPI for Angola, the National Institute of Statistics (INE) with technical assistance from OPHI and support from UNDP Angola first published a report on multidimensional poverty in the municipalities of Angola in 2019.

The report presents multidimensional poverty results for 164 municipalities and assesses the challenges that each municipality faces in its development process, through a broad conception of poverty aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

Angola MPI structure: dimensions and indicators

Poverty Cut-Off: A person is considered poor if they are deprived in a third of weighted indicators across 16 indicators. 

Global MPI

The annual global MPI produced by the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative in partnership with the Human Development Report Office of the United Nations Development Programme is an internationally comparable index of acute multidimensional poverty. OPHI publishes Country Briefings summarising poverty statistics of the global MPI for each country.
