Here’s how Google Maps Mania describes the Global Poverty Map:

The Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative has developed a method for measuring poverty that takes into account a number of factors, including health, education, and living standards. This Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) is made up of ten indicators, divided into these three main dimensions of poverty.

The Global Poverty Map provides a number of global views of poverty based on the MPI. The map provides an overview of poverty around the world based on the 2014 Global MPI findings, with each country shaded on the map based on each country’s MPI score.

I’m adding it to The Best Visualizations Of Poverty In The U.S. & Around The World.
