Sub-national Disparities and Inter-temporal Evolution of Multidimensional Poverty across Developing Countries

In this recording Suman Seth, OPHI Research Officer, introduces “Sub-national Disparities and Inter-temporal Evolution of Multidimensional Poverty across Developing Countries”, a paper, co-authored with Sabina Alkire and Jose Manuel Roche of Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) results. His talk focuses on new analyses of sub-national decompositions and changes over time for 1.4 billion of the 1.65 billion MPI poor people identified by the MPI in 2011. It analyses the incidence, intensity and composition of multidimensional poverty at sub-national levels for 66 developing countries, and presents poverty estimates for 683 sub-national regions. Finally, he presents analysis of changes over time for ten countries and their 158 sub-national regions for which we have comparable data across two different periods of time, providing information regarding the reduction of each indicator within each region.
