POVERTY: Tools for the Expert Economists

ADePT: Software Platform for Automated Economic Analysis — ADePT software was developed in the research department of the World Bank to automate and standardize economic analysis. ADePT is now freely available for download from this site for applied economics researchers willing to quickly and reliably analyse their data using most modern statistical and econometric techniques.
PovcalNet — An interactive computational tool that allows you to replicate the calculations made by the World Bank’s researchers in estimating the extent of absolute poverty in the world ($1 a day). It also allows you to calculate the poverty measures under different assumptions and to assemble the estimates using alternative country groupings or for any set of individual countries of your choosing. PovcalNet is self-contained. PovcalNet is a product of the World Bank's Development Research Group.

PovSTAT — an Excel based program that produces forecasts that vary by level of complexity depending on the availability of reliable data for the post survey period and on the extent to which various factors influencing poverty levels are incorporated. You will find a chapter describing the tool, as well as a file with the program itself.,,contentMDK:20271992~menuPK:497971~pagePK:148956~piPK:216618~theSitePK:336992~isCURL:Y,00.html
