A new poverty measurement tool, the
Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) has been developed that gives
a multidimensional picture of people living in poverty and may help
target development resources more effectively.
The MPI was created through a
partnership between Oxford Poverty and Human Development
Initiative (OPHI) at Oxford University and the United Nations Human
Development Report Office (UNDP).
It provides a fuller portrait of acute
poverty than simple income measures, its creators say, by assessing
a range of critical factors at household level, including
education, health outcomes, assets and services. The nature
and extent of poverty at different levels – household, regional,
national and international – are also captured along with distinct
and broader aspects of poverty.
