Hi. I am wondering about whether PPI data can be used to estimate affordability of some services that are valued in today's local currency.  We are specifically looking at school affordability.  Is it technically valid to use the $1.90/day poverty level to estimate the affordability of school costs?

Hello, I'm Julio Cesar, 

my question is? Is it possible to use a PPI if it is not updated? Where can I find the PPI of Nicaragua?

Hi,

Can I confirm that the 2009 PPI scorecard for Pakistan is the most up to date version please?  It is not clear from the website.

Thanks

Eileen

Hello, since PPI has already released its latest update which in the Philippines, its based on 2015/16 survey data, does it mean that we are not allowed to use the previous PPI?

Thank you.

Hi PPI users- my organization is currently struggling with a lack of baseline data on beneficiaries' poverty levels at the start of the project. We want to measure both the organization's poverty reach over time, as well as changes in poverty rates among beneficiaries over time. Would it be valid to conduct a retrospective PPI survey, asking for example "What type of toilet facility did the household mainly use in [year before the start of the project]?" (given the usual caveats about recall bias). What factors should we take into account if we were to go down this road?

PPI is one of the most reliable tools at the moment in determining the level of poverty in the Global South Countries(Developing Nations). A number of questions are set for data collection to measure the living conditions of the population to determine the outcome regarding whether that family and cluster of families and eventually a developing Nation could be termed poor or has made appreciable progress out of poverty.

Hi PPI users and managers,

As you might know, the World Bank has recently updated the poverty rate figures for a range of developing countries. The new figures are generally based on 2015/16 data while the previous figures were based on 2010/11 data. Currently the PPIs are based on the 2010/11 survey waves, so my first question for the PPI managers is when could users expect updated PPIs to be published on the website?

Greetings!

I'm currently evaluating our organizations application and screening process, and I'm wondering how we might be able to use the PPI for screening and targeting?  We our a social NGO working with impoverished and vulnerable children.  I'm trying to help our organization have a consistent application and screening process.  Most of our locations receive hundreds of applications a year, but most don't fit our criteria.

Hi everyone,

The question is dedicated to MFIs which implemented the PPI: how much did/does it cost for your organization ? Did you integrate it in your MIS ? Do you have some recommendations to minimize costs and time of data collection ?

Thank you very much for your contribution.
