Mapping the MPI

Explore global multidimensional poverty around the world using OPHI’s interactive world map. It shows how poverty differs by country in 2013, with a darker colour indicating a higher MPI, and therefore greater poverty. Double click on countries with subnational breakdowns to see individual country maps.
