Poverty and Inequality

World Bank poverty experts work with countries to analyze and evaluate how economic growth is affecting different groups in society and to determine how public policies can better protect the poor. We look at what happens when development leads to higher inequality, and what impact shocks at the household level and in the economy as a whole have on the poor. We also track poverty and inequality trends over time, and help our clients develop better tools for measuring such data. This collection shows the breadth of our work.
