Abstract

Using materials and methods already made publicly available by Dykstra et al. [2014b,a], I follow up their work and hereby make available the latest distributional data from World Bank’s PovcalNet as of October 2nd, 2018. These data are used in the poverty estimates by the PovcalNet interactive online tool. Having these data locally, an independent scholar can experiment with extensive poverty line configurations that PovcalNet is impossible to accommodate at its present version.
