Guatemala

The Progress out of Poverty Index® (PPI®) is a poverty measurement tool for organizations and businesses with a mission to serve the poor.  The PPI is statistically-sound, yet simple to use: the answers to 10 questions about a household’s characteristics and asset ownership are scored to compute the likelihood that the household is living below the poverty line – or above by only a narrow margin.  With the PPI, organizations can identify the clients, customers, or employees who are most likely to be poor or vulnerable to poverty, integrating objective poverty data into their assessments and strategic decision-making.

The latest version of the PPI for Guatemala was created in October 2016 by Mark Schreiner of Microfinance Risk Management, L.L.C. Indicators in the PPI for Guatemala are based on data from Guatemala's 2014 Household Living Standards Survey.

Please take note that the 2014 PPI for Guatemala is not comparable to the 2006 PPI. Download this guide (English, PDF, log-in required) for more information on transitioning to a new version.
