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.
