A PPA is typically one of many inputs into a poverty assessment (see Box 1). Unlike household surveys, which collect statistical data on the extent of poverty through standardized methods and rules, PPAs focus on processes and explanations of poverty as defined by individuals and communities within an evolving, flexible, and open framework. PPAs are sometimes referred to as qualitative surveys. This name can be confusing because there is a qualitative dimension to traditional survey work, and many PPAs contain quantified information and analysis.

Indeed, the World Bank has sometimes been characterized as working exclusively with a consumption-or income-based definition of poverty. This has never been true (for example, the WDR 1990 placed considerable emphasis on the lack of health and education as dimensions, as well as causes, of poverty). However, it is true that most poverty assessments have identified the poor in terms of a poverty line, based on a countryspecific assessment of the minimum consumption required to meet basic nutritional standards and to effectively participate in a society.
