The Mexican Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) was designed by the independent Council for the Evaluation of Social Policy (Coneval) and adopted by the Mexican government in 2010. It was the first national poverty measure to reflect the full breadth of poverty at the household level. The Secretariat of Social Development (Sedesol), which is the public agency responsible for social development efforts in Mexico, has made the measure central to its work on eradicating poverty in the country.
