Abstract

The povcalnet commands allows Stata users to compute poverty and inequality indicators for more than 160 countries and regions in the World Bank's database of household surveys. It has the same functionality as the PovcalNet website. PovcalNet is a computational tool that allows users to estimate poverty rates for regions, sets of countries or individual countries, over time and at any poverty line.
