  • CPIA equity of public resource use rating > 1=low to 6=high: CPIA equity of public resource use rating (1=low to 6=high). Equity of public resource use assesses the extent to which the pattern of public expenditures and revenue collection affects the poor and is consistent with national poverty reduction priorities.
  • Headcount ratio at national poverty line > % of population: National poverty rate is the percentage of the population living below the national poverty line. National estimates are based on population-weighted subgroup estimates from household surveys.
  • Headcount ratio at rural poverty line > % of rural population: Rural poverty rate is the percentage of the rural population living below the national rural poverty line.
  • Poverty gap at $1.25 a day > PPP: Poverty gap is the mean shortfall from the poverty line (counting the nonpoor as having zero shortfall), expressed as a percentage of the poverty line. This measure reflects the depth of poverty as well as its incidence."
  • Poverty gap at $1.25 a day > PPP > %: Poverty gap at $1.25 a day (PPP) (%). Poverty gap is the mean shortfall from the poverty line (counting the nonpoor as having zero shortfall), expressed as a percentage of the poverty line. This measure reflects the depth of poverty as well as its incidence.
  • Poverty gap at $2 a day > PPP: Poverty gap is the mean shortfall from the poverty line (counting the nonpoor as having zero shortfall), expressed as a percentage of the poverty line. This measure reflects the depth of poverty as well as its incidence."

  • Poverty gap at national poverty line > %: Poverty gap at national poverty line (%). Poverty gap at national poverty line is the mean shortfall from the poverty line (counting the nonpoor as having zero shortfall) as a percentage of the poverty line. This measure reflects the depth of poverty as well as its incidence.
  • Poverty gap at rural poverty line: Poverty gap at rural poverty line is the mean shortfall from the poverty line (counting the nonpoor as having zero shortfall) as a percentage of
  • Poverty gap at rural poverty line > %: Poverty gap at rural poverty line (%). Poverty gap at rural poverty line is the mean shortfall from the poverty line (counting the nonpoor as having zero shortfall) as a percentage of the national rural poverty line. This measure reflects the depth of poverty as well as its incidence.

  • Poverty gap at urban poverty line > %: Poverty gap at urban poverty line (%). Poverty gap at urban poverty line is the mean shortfall from the poverty line (counting the nonpoor as having zero shortfall) as a percentage of the national urban poverty line. This measure reflects the depth of poverty as well as its incidence.
  • Poverty headcount ratio at $2 a day > PPP > % of population: Population below $2 a day is the percentage of the population living on less than $2.00 a day at 2005 international prices. As a result of revisions in PPP exchange rates, poverty rates for individual countries cannot be compared with poverty rates reported in earlier editions."
  • Poverty headcount ratio at rural poverty line > % of rural population: Rural poverty rate is the percentage of the rural population living below the national rural poverty line.
  • Poverty headcount ratio at urban poverty line > % of urban population: Urban poverty rate is the percentage of the urban population living below the national urban poverty line.
