National MPI

54% of Angolans live in multidimensional poverty and experience multiple deprivations, according to the Angola Multidimensional Poverty Index (A-MPI), which assesses the proportion of poor and the intensity of that poverty.

The report was prepared by the National Institute of Statistics (INE), in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative, University of Oxford (OPHI).

The report is based on the Multiple Health Indicators Survey (IIMS) 2015-2016 and considers that people who suffer at least a third of the deprivations analyzed are multidimensionally poor, which are divided into four dimensions: health, education, quality life and employment. The study provides a clearer picture of which communities are most vulnerable and what investments can be made to improve certain indicators.

Municipal MPI

On 26 November 2019, the National Institute of Statistics of Angola with technical assistance from OPHI and support from UNDP Angola published a first report on multidimensional poverty in the municipalities of Angola.

This report presents the levels and composition of the multidimensional poverty of Angola’s 164 municipalities, using data from the General Population and Housing Census (2014 Census). The report assesses the challenges that each municipality faces in relation to its development process, through a broad conception of poverty aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In particular, this effort contributes to the fulfillment of SDG 1.2.2 which promotes poverty reduction in all its forms and dimensions.

The Angola MPI for Municipalities has the following dimensions and indicators:

According to the report, sixty-five of the 164 municipalities in Angola’s eighteen provinces have a 90 percent incidence of multidimensional poverty.

This report is available here (in Portuguese).
