This index complements monetary measures of poverty by considering overlapping deprivations suffered by individuals at the same time. The Multidimentional Poverty index identifies deprivations across the same three dimensions as the HDI and shows the number of people who are multidimensionally poor (suffering deprivations in 33% or more of the weighted indicators) and the number of weighted deprivations with which poor households typically contend with.
