How can the MPI estimates be replicated?

Since the 2014 HDR, all statistical programmes used to calculate the MPI are available in the HDRO’s website (http://hdr.undp.org/en/content/mpi-statistical-programmes). Also, DHS and MICS data are publicly available online. Therefore, national governments, civil societies, and research communities can replicate the MPI results as well as adapt the programmes to their own country-specific poverty needs.
