The UN report states that India recorded the fastest decline in multi-dimensional poverty

United Nations: The United Nations Report has shown that India in 2006 and 2016 came out of the poverty of 271 million people.
The UN report states that this is the fastest decline in the value of the multi-dimensional poverty index over the period with strong improvements in areas such as “property, fuel for cooking, sanitation and nutrition”.
The report further states that in the 101 studied country, 31 with low income, 68 middle income and 2 high incomes, 1.3 billion people are “multidimensional poor”. Poverty is defined not only by income, but also by a number of indicators, including poor health, poor quality of work and threat of violence, the report said.
The report identifies 10 countries, with a population of nearly 2 billion people, to illustrate the level of poverty reduction.
The ten countries surveyed are Bangladesh, Cambodia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru and Vietnam. The report said that 270 million people from one survey from multiple surveys emerged from multi-dimensional poverty.
