Myanmar Living Conditions Survey 2017: Poverty Report

June 25, 2019

The Myanmar Living Conditions Survey (MLCS) is a comprehensive assessment of the well-being of people in Myanmar. It provides reliable, accurate and up-to-date data that can be used to inform policies for the future development of the country, establish the baseline of Myanmar Sustainable Development Plan and monitor the Sustainable Development Goals within the context of the 2030 Agenda.

This Poverty Report is the second in a series of analytical reports drawing from the MLCS that are produced jointly by the Central Statistical Organization (CSO), World Bank and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

The Key Indicators Report, launched in 2018, provides a snapshot of key non-monetary indicators of living standards in Myanmar.

This report provides an update and a basic diagnostic of poverty in Myanmar.This report has been possible because of the generous financial support of the governments of Australia, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Republic of Korea, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
