Multidimensional Poverty in Pakistan

National MPI Reports

This report presents Pakistan's first official national Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) and was published by the Ministry of Planning, Development & Reform in Pakistan in collaboration with OPHI to provide evidence and a basis for public policy and resource allocations, especially under the National Finance Commission and the Provincial Finance Commission.

Based on data from the Pakistan Social and Living Standards Measurement (PSLM) survey for 2014/15, the report provides estimates of multidimensional poverty at the national, provincial and district levels and includes a trend analysis spanning 2004-2015. It establishes a baseline for Pakistan's Vision 2025 and the SDGs.
