India lifted 271 million people out of poverty between 2006 and 2016, recording the fastest reductions in the multidimensional poverty index values during the period with strong improvements in areas such as “assets, cooking fuel, sanitation and nutrition,” a report by the United Nations said.

The 2019 global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) from the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) was released on Thursday.

The report said that in the 101 countries studied — 31 low income, 68 middle income and 2 high income - 1.3 billion people are “multidimensionally poor”, which means that poverty is defined not simply by income, but by a number of indicators, including poor health, poor quality of work and the threat of violence.

The report identifies 10 countries, with a combined population of around 2 billion people, to illustrate the level of poverty reduction, and all of them have shown statistically significant progress towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal 1, namely ending poverty “in all its forms, everywhere”.

271 million down...

Only another 700 million to go..


Meanwhile, the USA under Donnie Dumpster has seen more people slipping into abject poverty, more homeless, more in jail -- and mass shootings up, including 3 in one day last week !

In 2005-2006, the population in India living in multidimensional poverty stood at about 640 million people (55.1%) and this reduced to 369 million people (27.9%) living in poverty in 2015-16. India saw significant reductions in number of people who are multidimensionally poor and deprived in each of the 10 indicators over this time period.

The poverty rate hasn't increased nor has the incarceration rate.

Mass shootings are not up during the past 2 years either. Mass shootings are up over the past 20 years but murder rates are down.

Look at China too. They no longer suffer famine and starvation since the government no longer controls the means of production.

Arrow

India's official census figures claim that only around  1.5 million people are homeless over there  --  even though many international agencies estimate the truer figure to be over 10 million..

India's population is now over 1 billion, even though population growth has been declining in recent years.

Yet their official figures also show that India has a total of less than 79 million homes available..

So, do the maths and work out the average number of people supposedly living in those houses/units/flats/hovels.

India also lacks social welfare and aged pensions, and also has shortages of clean water and adequate health care.
