World Bank's PovcalNet Distributional Data for Poverty Research, http://dx.doi.org/10.24416/UU01-AMUFCE
Using materials and methods already made publicly available by Dykstra et al. (2014), I hereby make available the latest distributional data from World Bank's PovcalNet as of October 2nd, 2018. These data are used in the poverty estimates by the PovcalNet interactive online tool. Having these data locally, an independent scholar can experiment with extensive poverty line configurations that PovcalNet cannot accommodate at its present version. NOTE: the data contained here are provided under a restrained version of the CC BY 4.0, see the License.txt for the full terms and conditions as stipulated in the terms and conditions of the World Bank datasets see.

Cost of Basic Needs based Global Poverty estimates, 1983-2014, http://dx.doi.org/10.24416/UU01-1Q5HIR
This dataset provides global poverty estimates using the method of cost of basic needs, covering the period 1983-2014, as have been calculated for the "Global Absolute Poverty: Behind the Veil of Dollars" article published in the Journal of Globalization and Development (DOI: 10.1515/jgd-2016-0033). Consult that article for details on the calculation method and the use of the data provided here. See the documentation in this datapackage for explanation of the meanings of each column. The data available here include an intermediary consumption basket to the two used in the original article. Consult the PovertyLineRecipies.pdf provided within this datapackage for the details in how this intermediary poverty line was constructed.
