Data and Software

Automated DEC Poverty Tables (ADePT)
Adept is a STATA software platform for automated economic analysis, designed to simplify and speed-up the work of making poverty assessments. ADePT can be used as a tool for sensitivity analysis, data checking, and as an educational tool. The program should also be helpful in the situation of the limited access to the micro data. By producing a standard set of tables and graphs the program standardizes the poverty statistics among the countries and opens possibilities for intra-country poverty comparisons. ADePT version 3.0 delivers two additional modules “Gender” and “Social Protection”.
Creators: Lokshin, Michael, Zurab Sajaia, and Sergiy Radyakin (research@worldbank.org).
