ppitables: Lookup Tables to Generate Poverty Likelihoods and Rates using the Poverty Probability Index (PPI)

The Poverty Probability Index (PPI) is a poverty measurement tool for organizations and businesses with a mission to serve the poor. The PPI is statistically-sound, yet simple to use: the answers to 10 questions about a household’s characteristics and asset ownership are scored to compute the likelihood that the household is living below the poverty line – or above by only a narrow margin. This package contains country-specific lookup data tables used as reference to determine the poverty likelihood of a household based on their score from the country-specific PPI questionnaire. These lookup tables have been extracted from documentation of the PPI found at <https://www.povertyindex.org> and managed by Innovations for Poverty Action <https://www.poverty-action.org>.
