      The World Bank and Global Poverty Course/Number Date Febru The President, World Bank Dear Mr. /Madam, REF: THE SHORTCOMINGS OF YOUR POVERTY MEASURES Mr. /Madam President, poverty is an ubiquitous phenomenon in virtually every part of the world, and which you and your Governors grapple with from time to time. Poverty is not having enough material possessions or income for a person's needs. Poverty may include social, economic, and political elements.. Absolute poverty is the complete lack of the means necessary to meet basic personal needs, such as food, clothing, and shelter. The threshold at which absolute poverty is defined is always about the same, independent of the person's permanent location.

        The World Bank’s latest annual report on poverty and shared prosperity has an unsurprisingly positive message that only 10% of the world’s population lived in extreme poverty . John Page is a nonresident senior fellow in the Global Economy and Development Program at the Brookings Institution and a nonresident senior fellow of the United Nations University World Institute .

      Descriptive studies are still present, in the form of the participatory methods, such as interviews of the poor or case studies. Many of the present methods of exploring urban poverty are focused on the drawing of the so-called city poverty profile - a spatial tool, defining the extent and nature of poverty within a given urban area. The World Bank does not guarantee the accuracy of the data included in this bound-aries, colors, denominations, and other information shown on any map in this work do not imply any judgement on the part of The World Bank concerning the legal status of any territory or the endorsement or acceptance of such boundaries.
