World Bank adds two new poverty lines | tutor2u Economics

The World Bank has added two new poverty lines—set at $3.20 and $5.50 a day (PPP) to join the $1.90 a day benchmark.

This blog explains some of the reasoning behind setting three absolute poverty thresholds.

From now onwards the World Bank will set a lower middle-income International Poverty Line, set at $3.20/day; and an upper middle-income International Poverty Line, set at $5.50/day. The $1.90/day measure continues to define the Bank’s goal of ending global extreme poverty by 2030.
