Tuvalu poverty and equity brief : spring 2018 (English)

This poverty and equity brief explains about the latest available Household Income and Expenditure Survey (HIES) data for Tuvalu are from 2010. Using the upper middle income class poverty line, the lower middle income class poverty line, and the international poverty line, the consumption-based poverty rates were 46.7 percent, 17.6 percent, and 3.3 percent, respectively. Inequality, as measured by the Gini index, was 39, which is comparable to most of Tuvalu's Pacific regional neighbors. Another HIES was conducted in 2016, so information on more recent poverty trends will become available in the near future.
