Abstract

In order to inform discussions on the extent of poverty in a country, it is often useful to compare the country’s poverty measures to estimates obtained in other countries with similar levels of development within the same region of the world. This short dissemination note provides estimates of poverty for countries from the Franc CFA zone and shows how simple cross-country poverty comparisons were used to inform poverty measurement in these countries.
