Unit of measurement



The proportion of people living below 50 percent of median income (or consumption) is the share (%) of a country’s population living on less than half of the consumption/income level of the median of the national income/consumption distribution.


The indicator is measured using per capita welfare measure of consumption or income. Per capita income or consumption is estimated using total household income or consumption divided by the total household size.

Rationale and interpretation

This indicator is an indicator of relative poverty and inequality of the income distribution within a country. This indicator and similar relative measures are commonly used for poverty measurement in rich countries and are increasingly also used as a complementary measure of inequality and poverty in low- and middleincome countries.

Method of computation

Average per capita monetary income is ranked in ascending order. The indicator is calculated by estimating the share (in percent) of the population living on less than 50% of median of the national distribution of income or consumption.

Comments and limitations

This indicator describes relative poverty and is based on the welfare indicator 40of a particular country.
