The Labor Income Poverty Index (LIPI) measures poverty based on the share of households that have less per capita labor income than the regional poverty lines relative to the reference period. The Labor Income Gini Index (LIGI) measures inequality based on labor income (rather than total income) as well.
This dashboard presents the LIPI and the LIGI for countries with available labor force survey data. The LIPI is measured using two regional poverty lines: 1) the extreme poor $3.2-a-day line (2011 PPP); and 2) the poor $5.5-a-day line (2011 PPP). The dashboard also allows one to select the reference period.
