Global Extreme Poverty
This entry is concerned with extreme poverty. The World Bank is the main source for global information on extreme poverty today and it sets the 'International Poverty Line'. The poverty line was revised in 2015—since then, a person is considered to be in extreme poverty if they live on less than 1.90 international dollars (int.-$) per day. This poverty measurement is based on the monetary value of a person's consumption. Income measures, on the other hand, are only used for countries in which reliable consumption measures are not available.
