PovcalNet - An Online Poverty Analysis Tool

This page is programmed to redirect you to the main PovcalNet page 


PovcalNet is a web application that provides data on poverty and inequality to allow users to replicate the World Bank’s global poverty measures. It also allows users to do their own calculations of global and regional poverty measures from the underlying survey-based distributional data, drawing on over 700 household surveys from over 120 countries. Users can also use their own poverty lines and do their own country groupings.
