The Simple Poverty Scorecard for Syria is based on the same methodology as that of the PPI scorecards created prior to July 2017. Read more about the PPI's new methodology here. This Simple Poverty Scorecard was developed by Mark Schreiner of Microfinance Risk Management, L.L.C.

The Scorecard was published in June 2010 and is based on data from 2006. It is funded by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East via a contract with Microfinanza SRL.
