The PPI provides household-level poverty estimates. Can those be converted to individual poverty estimates?

Yes, you can estimate person-level poverty rates by taking a household-size-weighted average of the household-level poverty likelihoods. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Multiply each household poverty likelihood by the number of household members.
  2. Add all products from step 1.
  3. Divide by the total number of individuals in question. Each country's PPI design memo provides more detail on this process and an example, typically found in section 2.2.
