What are the difficulties in estimation income inequality at the global level? -Developing countries for example India and china are growing faster than developed countries and the poor counters are falling behind. -Income poverty is merely one aspect of deprivation. public goods and services are not account for (e.g. sewer services, access to basic health care). -Limited data and inconsistencies of country to country by comparison What are the different ways of measuring global inequality? -International Poverty Line (IPL) calculated by converting the purchasing power (Purchasing Power Parity: adjustment based on how much it costs to buy the same basket of goods in two or more different countries) of an average of the official national poverty lines of a set of low- income countries into U.S. dollars. -From household surveys, the World Bank (International Comparison Program) then estimates the number of people in countries living on less than this figure.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
