Seeing Between the Lines: Visualizing Global Poverty Trends


Over 20 years ago Martin Ravallion and Shaohua Chen with various collaborators along the way developed the now widely used methods, tools and indicators to monitor the population “living on less than $ a day”.  Earlier this year they released the latest update of the World Bank’s global poverty monitoring data along with a re-vamped version of PovcalNet: an interactive on-line computational poverty analysis tool.  We downloaded the table with regional poverty estimates and used PovcalNet to calculate the results for additional poverty lines.  We then combined all the data in the three-panel visualization embedded here.
