Uncertainty in Ending Extreme Poverty

Wednesday, June 12th, 2019
In terms of country groupings, in relative terms, extreme poverty is expected to decline in the period 2015-30 in economies with low, middle, and high rates of per capita output growth. However, in low-output growth economies, the absolute number of poor is expected to increase. The model simulations also predict that high-output growth economies—countries with steady growth rates above 4 percent—will reach poverty rates below a 3 percent level before 2030. Noticeably, the simulations display a low degree of uncertainty around the expected poverty rates in these high-output growth countries. Follow this link to read more. Sourced from: Brookings
