For the term as defined in the United States, see Poverty thresholds (United States).

Percentage of population living on less than $1.25 per day. UN estimates 2000-2007.
The poverty threshold, or poverty line, is the minimum level of income deemed adequate in a given country.[1] In practice, like the definition of poverty, the official or common understanding of the poverty line is significantly higher in developed countries than in developing countries. The common international poverty line has in the past been roughly $1 a day. In 2008, the World Bank came out with a revised figure of $1.25 at 2005 purchasing-power parity (PPP).

Population living under 1.25 and
2 dollar (PPP) a day (%)
(International poverty line)
Population living below national poverty line is 28.5% and polpulation living under $2 per day is 51.84%. This is the 2006/7 world bank estimates.
