Percentage of Population Living in Poverty | Education for Sustainable Development |

This interactive map shows national estimates of the percentage of the population falling below the poverty line.  That is a quite problematic situate to map, since the operational definitions of poverty vary considerably among countries.  Also, there are some counties without data (Central Africa, North Korea, etc.)  However, there is still considerable value to be gleaned from this map.  What regional patterns do you notice?  How will this map inform our understanding of migration patterns and political unrest?
