Global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) Data Bank

OPHI’s global MPI Data Bank contains a wealth of resources on multidimensional poverty in 104 developing countries, enabling users to see how poverty is experienced in different parts of the world, zoom in on sub-national regions, or explore the character of poverty by different indicators. Follow the links below to find out more.

country-briefings

Country Briefings – Find country-specific results of the MPI analysis of 104 developing nations, illustrated with graphs, maps and charts.

Each country profile includes comparisons of the MPI with other poverty measures, breakdowns by deprivation indicators and urban/rural areas, and a look at the average intensity of poverty among the poor. Of the countries analysed, 65 also have data on poverty at the sub-national level, covering a total of 663 regions.

datatables Data Tables – Access detailed MPI data for 2013 – at the national level for 104 countries, at the subnational level for 663 regions of 65 countries, and on changes in MPI over time for 22 countries and their subnational regions where possible. The tables are divided into sheets to enable easy navigation through the data, with detailed information provided on what is included in each table and sheet.
povertymaps Poverty Maps – Explore global multidimensional poverty around the world using OPHI’s mapping tools. With our interactive world map, you can explore either by the MPI as a whole, or by the individual dimensions and indicators of MPI poverty. You can also see the intensity and incidence of poverty individually, allowing you to zoom in even closer and see the character of poverty around the world.
casestudies

Case Studies - The MPI identifies poor people whose lives are battered by several deprivations at the same time. But who are these people? To answer this question, we spoke with people who were poor according to the MPI in their country. We learned about their lives – their hopes and strengths, and their challenges. Naturally their lives are far richer than any measure can capture. You can hear and read some of their stories here.
