Georgia - Poverty headcount ratio

Poverty headcount ratio at $3.10 a day (2011 PPP) (% of population)

The value for Poverty headcount ratio at $3.10 a day (2011 PPP) (% of population) in Georgia was 28.58 as of 2013. As the graph below shows, over the past 17 years this indicator reached a maximum value of 44.94 in 2001 and a minimum value of 15.98 in 1996.

Definition: Poverty headcount ratio at $3.10 a day is the percentage of the population living on less than $3.10 a day at 2011 international prices. As a result of revisions in PPP exchange rates, poverty rates for individual countries cannot be compared with poverty rates reported in earlier editions. Note: five countries -- Bangladesh, Cabo Verde, Cambodia, Jordan, and Lao PDR -- use the 2005 PPP conversion factors and corresponding $1.25 a day and $2 a day poverty lines. This is due to the large deviations in the rate of change in PPP factors relative to the rate of change in domestic consumer price indexes. See Box 1.1 in the Global Monitoring Report 2015/2016 (http://www.worldbank.org/en/publication/global-monitoring-report) for a detailed explanation.
