Regional poverty lines, poverty profiles, and targeting
The most labour-intensive task in building a poverty profile consists in the estimation of the poverty lines.

Using a decomposition of the Gini index of inequality in poverty measures, it is shown that it does, but not too much in Bangladesh.
