The Poverty Probability Index (PPI®) is a poverty measurement tool for organizations and businesses with a mission to serve the poor.  The PPI is statistically-sound, yet simple to use: the answers to 10 questions about a household’s characteristics and asset ownership are scored to compute the likelihood that the household is living below the poverty line – or above by only a narrow margin.  With the PPI, organizations can identify the clients, customers, or employees who are most likely to be poor or vulnerable to poverty, integrating objective poverty data into their assessments and strategic decision-making.

The latest version of the PPI for Mexico was created in May 2017 by Mark Schreiner of Microfinance Risk Management, L.L.C. Indicators in the PPI for Mexico are based on data from households surveyed in the 2014 Encuesta Nacional de Ingresos y Gastos de Hogares (ENIGH).

Please take note that the 2014 PPI for Mexico is not comparable to the 2008 PPI. See pages 1-3 of the Design Documentation for more explanation on this. Download this guide (English, PDF, log-in required) for more information on transitioning to a new version.
