Improving Multidimensional Poverty Measurements

The state-of-the-art online platform of the Multidimensional Poverty Index Assist Tool (MAT) enables state officials to construct an appropriate national multidimensional poverty index (MPI) using advanced diagnostics, with transparency and accountability. The MAT empowers states to use their microdata surveys to assess the incidence and depth of multidimensional deprivations in population, and is envisioned to help states track their status and growth, and simulate developmental shocks. It also allows regional and temporal comparisons!
