A Multidimensional Perspective Of Poverty In Malaysia

Multidimensional poverty is a measurement of the lack at the household and individual level in health, education and standard of living. The Multi-dimensional Poverty Index (MPI) collects data to reflect the incidence, which is the headcount, and the intensity, which is the degree of severity using the average deprivation score.

The MPI allows us to have a comprehensive understanding of the various levels of poverty that people experience and can be used to compare poverty across various countries, and regions. It can also be used within a country to compare poverty amongst ethnic groups, urban and rural locations, and other community characteristics.
