Example text

The focus on this issue is particularly pertinent, as the World Bank has recently published extensive revisions to this indicator (Chen and Ravallion 2008). In fact, the revision of these numbers has been based on the derivation of a new international poverty line against which to measure levels and trends in poverty, as well as a recalculation of poverty levels and trends for all countries going back to 1981. Thus both the baseline for the first MDG target in 1990 has changed as well as the levels in each subsequent year, thereby also affecting the rate of progress towards this MDG.

For example, Heston (2008) argues that in the 2005 ICP the biggest reason for the drastic downward revision of PPP adjusted per capita income (and thus the large upward adjustment of poverty levels) was due to changes in the assumptions about the productivity of government services. While this is an important issue to consider when comparing GDP levels, it is less clear that it is a relevant factor to consider when assessing poverty as the poor are arguably less affected by this change (see Reddy 2008).
