This page is programmed to redirect you to the main PovcalNet page http://iresearch.worldbank.org/PovcalNet PovcalNet is a web application that provides data on poverty and inequality to allow users to replicate the World Bank’s global poverty measures. It also allows users to do their own calculations of global and regional poverty measures from the underlying survey-based distributional data, drawing on over 700 household surveys from over 120 countries. Users can also use their own poverty lines and do their own country groupings. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
The World Bank views good governance and anti-corruption as important to its poverty alleviation mission. Many governance and anti-corruption initiatives are taking place throughout the World Bank Group. They focus on internal organizational integrity, minimizing corruption on World Bank-funded projects, and assisting countries in improving governance and controlling corruption. Combining participatory action-oriented learning, capacity-building tools, and the power of data , the World Bank Institute (WBI), in collaboration with other units in the World Bank Group, supports countries in improving governance and controlling corruption. We also provide policy and institutional advice and support to countries in their formulation of action programs. Using a strategic and multidisciplinary approach, we apply action-learning methods to link empirical diagnostic surveys , their practical application, collective action, and prevention.
The Worldwide Governance Indicators (WGI) project reports aggregate and individual governance indicators for 215 economies over the period 1996–2011, for six dimensions of governance: These aggregate indicators combine the views of a large number of enterprise, citizen and expert survey respondents in industrial and developing countries. They are based on 30 individual data sources produced by a variety of survey institutes, think tanks, non-governmental organizations, international organizations, and private sector firms. Financial support from the Knowledge for Change Program of the World Bank is gratefully acknowledged.
