SDG # 1 - End poverty
End poverty in all its forms everywhere
The following are the indicators used to measure progress towards achieving this goal:
- 1.1 Proportion of the population living below the national poverty line
- The percentage of the population living below a specific poverty line, determined by the country, is calculated and used as a measure of poverty levels.
- 1.2 Poverty gap ratio
- The poverty gap ratio is calculated as the mean distance below the poverty line as a percentage of the poverty line. It indicates the extent to which the average poor person falls below the poverty line.
- 1.3 Share of poorest quintile in national consumption
- The share of the poorest 20% of the population in the total consumption of the country is calculated to measure progress in reducing poverty among the poorest segments of society.
- 1.4 Gini index
- The Gini index measures income inequality within a country by calculating the ratio of the area between the Lorenz curve and the line of equality to the total area under the line of equality. A lower Gini index indicates greater income equality.
- 1.5 Multidimensional poverty index (MPI)
- The MPI takes into account multiple dimensions of poverty, including health, education, and living standards. It provides a composite measure of poverty that reflects the multiple dimensions of poverty experienced by individuals.
