The latest version of the PPI for Nicaragua was created in February 2022 by Innovations for Poverty Action, based on data from the Encuesta Nacional de Hogares Sobre Medición de Nivel de Vida (EMNV, 2014) produced by the Instituto Nacional de Información de Desarrollo (INIDE).

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.  With the PPI, organizations can identify the clients, customers, or employees who are most likely to be poor, integrating objective poverty data into their assessments and strategic decision-making.
