Quick Poverty Score Toolkit: User’s Guide and Spreadsheet
Link to Document:
Abstract: The Quick Poverty Score (QPS) is a simple, easy-to-use tool that health service programs can use to assess the prevalence of poverty among their clients. Using three components, QPS provides a snapshot of uptake of program services by those living below the national poverty line, below U.S. $2 per day, and below U.S. $1 per day. Country-specific user's guides explain how to apply QPS and interpret outputs in 10 countries, with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets for each country (Spanish translations are available for Honduras and Guatemala).
