Positional Accuracy This Statistical Update does not contain the Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI). This year, the MPI was computed using the methodology jointly revised by the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) and the Human Development Report Office (HDRO) and it will be available in due course. It is important to note that national and international data can differ because international agencies standardize national data to allow comparability across countries and in some cases may not have access to the most recent national data.
