This indicator shows the number and proportion of children living in households that are income poor. Three poverty lines are used: an 'upper' poverty line, a 'lower' poverty line and an 'ultra-low' poverty line equivalent to US$2-a-day. These values are set in the year 2000 and are increased each year in line with inflation.
