POVERTY IN PAKISTAN

According to the World Bank’s Poverty Head Count Analysis for 2014, if income per adult in Pakistan is taken as $1.25 per day, then 21 % of the population lives below the poverty line (according to year 2008 population estimates) but if the poverty line is raised to $2 per day in line with international standards for middle income countries, then 60 % of the population falls below the poverty line.
