The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) 2022 classifies 133 million Nigerians as “multidimensionally poor”.

There were 15 indicators under four broad areas: Health

(nutrition, food security, distance to healthcare);


(school attendance, years of schooling, school lag);

Living standards (water, water reliability, sanitation, housing materials, cooking fuel, assets);

Work and shocks (unemployment, underemployment, security-shock).
