Supplementary notes

The Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) examines poverty in the world across several different dimensions. Data is collected through household surveys in 111 developing countries worldwide representing 6.1 billion people. The index score ranges from 0 to 1, with a higher score indicating a higher prevalence of multidimensional poverty.

Most countries conducted their surveys prior to 2020, meaning that the full effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war have not been covered.
