Data and statistical analysis in the Asia and Pacific region contributes to knowledge generation in ADB, helping strengthen its institutional priorities and operational effectiveness in its developing member countries.
While the COVID-19 pandemic caused an uptick in the prevalence of extreme and moderate poverty in 2020, the prevalence of extreme poverty in developing Asia is anticipated to fall to less than 1% of the population by 2030. Moreover, at least 20% of developing Asia’s population were either extremely or moderately poor in 2021, but the proportion of people who are at least economically secure may reach nearly 70% by 2030.
Note: Each income grouping is calculated as the percentage of people in developing Asia in 29 ADB developing member economies with available data. These estimates are based on a simplifying assumption that all households within an economy experienced the same percentage decline in their per capita consumption expenditure and/or income as predicted based on GDP per capita growth numbers. The lines for 2019-2020 represent estimates under a non-COVID-19 pandemic scenario.
