Research Study on Poverty-Specific Purchasing Power Parities for Selected Countries in Asia and the Pacific

The Research Study on Poverty-Specific Purchasing Power Parities for Selected Countries in Asia and the Pacific is a methodological research for compiling purchasing power parities (PPPs) for measuring poverty in the region. The study covers 16 of the 23 economies participating in the 2005 International Comparison Program in Asia and the Pacific. It presents a detailed account of the activities undertaken to estimate PPPs using the recommended methodology of the Poverty Advisory Group of the World Bank, as well as alternative PPPs derived from poverty-specific price surveys.
