There are 767 million people in the world who live in extreme poverty — $1.90 a day or less for daily needs. But you can have more than that and still be considered poor. So the World Bank has now set two poverty lines for middle-income countries.

If you live on $1.90 a day or less, the World Bank says you are extremely poor. Two new poverty lines offer a way to measure poverty in middle income countries.
