It is important that staff members that oversee PPI use at their organization are well-trained on PPI best practices. Proper training and education improves the accuracy of PPI data and therefore the quality of the decisions and assessments that are based on that data.

The following resources are designed to help your organization succeed at attaining and leveraging poverty data using the PPI:
