4 2 International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth A poverty line can also be held constant over time and across countries, as has been the practice in the specialised literature dealing with global poverty comparisons conducted by the World Bank and the United Nations (e.g. the famous US$1 and US$2 per day per person purchasing power parity (PPP) poverty lines). As argued in this paper, if, for a variety of reasons, PPPs do not equate purchasing power, a more credible approach for international comparisons would allow the poverty line to be related to changes in the standard of living. 2 It can be inferred from this typology of poverty lines that poverty measurement lends itself to a wide range of definitions and measurement methodologies. These conceptual and measurement differences yield, in turn, a spectrum of results. Data weaknesses and limitations in developing countries also present an often insurmountable obstacle to poverty and inequality assessments. Hence, it should not come as a surprise that there is little agreement, even among global poverty experts, on the most basic questions such as: how many poor people are there in the world today? Have developing countries been successful in reducing poverty? Relative to other developing regions, have sub-saharan Africa and South Asia, the regions with lowest income per capita, performed well to reduce poverty and inequality and to grow per capita expenditure? What are the most common characteristics of the poor population in these most deprived regions? Which policies, programmes and interventions are most effective in reducing extreme poverty? Are there successful poverty reduction experiences that can be easily emulated? No doubt, these questions are difficult to address, let alone in a single paper. Still, we attempt to cover, to the extent possible, the first three questions with some analytical and empirical depth, relying on the most famous measure of poverty, namely the headcount ratio (which is the ratio of those with consumption expenditure below a specified poverty line to total population and is also known as the poverty rate ). The relevant stylised facts we aim to examine for developing countries in this paper are thus primarly related to the spread of money-metric poverty and its evolution over time. However, we will briefly discuss the growth of consumption expenditure and the degree of inequality in the distribution of this expenditure. Section 2 reviews the conventional storyline of global poverty based on the popular $1.25 poverty line. In Section 3, we examine national poverty lines, which we believe produce a more accurate picture for the majority of countries. However, national poverty lines have a serious comparability problem, since developing countries use a wide range of methodologies to define poverty. Furthermore, they are particularly problematic for the purpose of global comparison when countries with large demographic weight, such as China, are completely off mark. However, if we can prove that the vast majority of countries get their national poverty lines right, we can solve this problem by allowing the poverty line to vary with expenditure. Hence, in Section 4, using national poverty lines and per capita expenditure derived from household surveys, we estimate the appropriate poverty line for international comparisons for 59 developing countries based on a significant number of survey results (over 350 surveys) and report the poverty rates based on these new poverty lines. Section 5 makes use of the same dataset to briefly examine the main growth and inequality trends underlying these poverty results. We end this paper with a few concluding remarks that summarise our main findings.
