The World Bank is looking for an Economist with strong data science skills to work on the methodology, data and platform behind the global poverty and inequality numbers, including PovcalNet. The SDGs’ focus on ‘ending poverty in all its forms’ and the corresponding indicators place new demands on the reporting of international poverty statistics. Furthermore, the Atkinson Commission on Global Poverty has made 21 recommendations to improve the World Bank’s poverty measurement. Incorporating these innovations into the global poverty measures will require new analytical and methodological work, as well as incorporating these new features into the PovcalNet platform.
