This SDSN Briefing Paper is prepared by the Sabina Alkire, Director, Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) for the Independent Expert Advisory Group (IEAG) on the Data Revolution for Sustainable Development.

This paper points out existing experiences that shed light on how to break the cycle of outdated poverty data and strengthen statistical systems. Such experiences show that it is possible to generate and analyze frequent and accurate poverty data that energizes and enables poverty eradication.
