Meaning of the menu items: Value: Indicator value in GDL Area Database. Trend: Average yearly change in indicator value since preceding survey. National rank: Within-country rank on indicator (1 is highest value within country). Continent rank: Within continent rank on indicator (continents are America, Africa, Asia/Pacific and (Eastern) Europe). LMIC decile: Decile position on indicator among 1300+ regions within 125+ low and middle income countries.

The indicators presented in this GDL Profile Report are created by aggregating to the sub-national and national level from representative household surveys. Detailed information on the data and methods used is available here and in Smits (2016).

1 The International Wealth Index (IWI) is an asset-based index that measures the economic situation of households in LMICs on the basis of their ownership of assets, housing quality and access to public services. IWI runs from 0 to 100, with 0 meaning none of the assets and lowest quality housing and services and 100 all assets and highest quality housing and services (Smits & Steendijk, 2015).

2 Subnational GNIc (logged) is estimated on the basis of national GNIc and variation in household wealth (IWI) across subnational regions. National GNIc equals its value in the UNDP Database
