On End Poverty Day, World Bank recently launched a new report called 2018 Poverty and Shared Prosperity: Piercing Together the Poverty Puzzle. The new study explores core measures of extreme poverty and introduces new pieces to the poverty puzzle – broadening the ways poverty is defined and measured beyond monetary poverty in order to recognize the complexity of poverty and inequalities across individuals, households, and countries.
