ppitables: Lookup tables to generate poverty likelihoods and rates using the Poverty Probability Index (PPI)

Project Status: Active – The project has reached a stable, usable state and is being actively developed. lifecycle CRAN CRAN CRAN CRAN Travis-CI Build Status AppVeyor Build Status Coverage Status DOI - All Versions

Lookup tables for estimating the likelihood of poverty using the Poverty Probability Index (previously called Progress out of Poverty Index) or PPI from country-specific indicators collected from cross-sectional surveys. This lookup table is extracted from documentation of the PPI found at https://www.povertyindex.org.

Installation

You can install ppitables from CRAN with:

install.packages("ppitables")
library(ppitables)

You can install ppitables from GitHub with:

if(!require("remotes")) install.packages("remotes")
remotes::install_github("validmeasures/ppitables")
library(ppitables)

Usage

The ppitables package contains PPI lookup tables for the 61 countries[1] where PPI can currently be calculated. To be able to use the lookup tables in ppitables appropriately, you need to be aware of the naming syntax used for the tables for each country. The name for each table will always have three fixed or constant components as follows:

ppiXXXYYYY

The name of any of the PPI tables contains:

  1. ppi in lower case letters;
  2. XXX which is the the three letter ISO code of the country of interest (all capitals); and,
  3. YYYY which is the specific year at which the country PPI table was released.

These three components are joined together without any spaces or gaps.

Some country lookup tables may have additional components to their name which are added after the year separated with an underscore. These usually signify that a lookup table released on a particular year has a subset table in which the poverty likelihoods for a given PPI score are reported based on a different poverty definition or cut-off. This additional component to the table name is usually a character value or alphanumeric and is usually country-specific. To know more about what this additional component to some PPI tables refer to, read the index table below of the PPI tables available in this package.

Following are the available PPI country tables from the ppitables package. This is updated as at 14 June 2019 using information from the PPI site.

To extract the actual PPI tables, the get_table() function can be used. The get_table() function wraps around the find_table() function to make a search for a specific PPI table and then extracts the table/s and puts them together into a tidy data frame.

For example, to get the actual PPI tables for all countries with PPI tables, the following command can be used in R:

get_table()
#> # A tibble: 84,436 x 7
#>    country     release_year filename   type  score poverty_definition   ppi

Notes

  1. Only 60 country PPI tables are shown here and available via the package. There is no lookup table for China because the China Poverty Scorecard is an expert-based scorecard. See this for futher explanation.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
