Tier 1

Tier 1 of the IDA18 RMS reports long-term development outcomes and the broader context of countries in which IDA operates. Progress in Tier 1 indicators is not directly attributed to IDA’s interventions; it is the outcome of collective efforts by countries and their development partners. There are 33 indicators in Tier 1 tracking progress that IDA-eligible countries are making on development indicators, organized under four categories: (1) WBG goals of poverty eradication and boosting shared prosperity; (2) growth; (3) sustainability and resilience; and (4) inclusiveness.

Growth rates of real per capita income of the bottom 40 percent (%)

Median of the annualized growth rates of average real per capita income (or consumption) of the bottom 40% of client countries’ population. This growth rate refers to the annualized growth rate of real per capita income (or consumption) of the poorest 40% of the population for each country, measured over an approximate reporting period (e.g., circa 2010–15). Selection of income or consumption follows the World Bank’s Global Poverty Monitoring (PovcalNet).

The median is calculated from annualized growth rates from IDA countries that have household survey data for the reporting period. Countries that lack survey data from this period are excluded from the index calculation.

Annual growth rate of real GDP per capita (%)

Annual percentage growth rate of GDP per capita based on constant local currency. Aggregates are based on constant 2010 U.S. dollars. GDP per capita is gross domestic product divided by midyear population. GDP at purchaser’s prices is the sum of gross value added by all resident producers in the economy plus any product taxes and minus any subsidies not included in the value of the products. It is calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or for depletion and degradation of natural resources.

Non-agriculture sectors, value added (as % of GDP)

Net output of non-agriculture sectors as percentage of GDP, calculated as subtracting agriculture value added (as percentage of GDP) from 100.

The non-agriculture sectors refer to the industry and services sectors. Industry corresponds to the International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC) divisions 10-45 and comprises value added in mining, manufacturing (also reported as a separate subgroup), construction, electricity, water, and gas. Services correspond to ISIC divisions 50-99 and include value added in wholesale and retail trade (including hotels and restaurants), transport, and government, financial, professional, and personal services such as education, health care, and real estate services. Also included are imputed bank service charges, import duties, and any statistical discrepancies noted by national compilers as well as discrepancies arising from rescaling.

Value added is the net output of a sector after adding up all outputs and subtracting intermediate inputs. It is calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or depletion and degradation of natural resources. The origin of value added is determined by the ISIC, revision 3.

Note: For countries that report value added in the national accounts at basic prices, gross value added at factor cost is used as the denominator. Aggregation is weighted average. Data is reported for all IDA eligible countries, including blend countries, in a reporting fiscal year.

Level of statistical capacity (scale from 0 to 100)

Statistical capacity indicator provides an overview of the statistical capacity of developing countries. It is based on a diagnostic framework developed with a view to assessing the capacity of national statistical systems using metadata information generally available for most countries, and monitoring progress in statistical capacity building over time. The framework has three dimensions: statistical methodology; source data; and data periodicity and timeliness. For each dimension, a country is scored against specific criteria, using information available from the World Bank and other international agencies. A composite score for each dimension and an overall score combining all three dimensions are derived for each country on a scale of 0-100. A higher score indicates a higher level of capacity.

Aggregation is un-weighted average. Data are from the Data on Statistical Capacity portal site. Data is reported for all IDA eligible countries, including blend countries, in a reporting fiscal year.

Trade Logistics Performance Index (average rating 1=low to 5=high)

Logistics Performance Index overall score reflects perceptions of a country's logistics based on efficiency of customs clearance process, quality of trade- and transport-related infrastructure, ease of arranging competitively priced shipments, quality of logistics services, ability to track and trace consignments, and frequency with which shipments reach the consignee within the scheduled time.

The index ranges from 1 to 5, with a higher score representing better performance. Data are from Logistics Performance Index surveys conducted by the World Bank in partnership with academic and international institutions and private companies and individuals engaged in international logistics. Respondents evaluate eight markets on six core dimensions on a scale from 1 (worst) to 5 (best).

The markets are chosen based on the most important export and import markets of the respondent's country, random selection, and, for landlocked countries, neighboring countries that connect them with international markets. Scores for the six areas are averaged across all respondents and aggregated to a single score using principal components analysis. Aggregation is unweighted average. Data is reported for all IDA eligible countries, including blend countries, in a reporting fiscal year.

Number of IDA countries that have raised taxes/GDP above 15%

Tax revenue in local currency divided by GDP in local currency. The indicator is a key measure of domestic resource mobilization in IDA countries. The indicator (and threshold of 15 percent) was established by the IMF in consideration of:

(i) close to half of LICs still have tax below 15% of GDP;

(ii) empirical evidence shows that once the tax-to-GDP level reaches12¾ percent, real GDP per capita increases sharply and in a sustained manner over several years;

(iii) 15% is the threshold for resources needed for an effective state.

Number of IDA countries that have an improved composite PEFA score

The indicator measures the PEFA score for dimensions across the pillars of budget reliability, transparency of public finances, and control in budget execution. The 3 dimensions selected represent three important elements of PFM performance from 3 different pillars of the PEFA methodology: budget reliability; transparency of public finances; and predictability and control in budget execution. The baseline score for each country is the numerated value of the average scores of the three dimensions for the most recent PEFA assessment. For example, A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1 and NU/NR=0.  Annual calculation of the progress is calculated as follows: 

Significant improvement = 2 points;

  • At least 2 of the 3 indicators show improvement in scores
  • At least 2 of the 3 indicators keeps the same score “A” or “B”
  • At least 1 of the indicators keeps the scores “A” or “B” plus  at least 1 of the indicators improves

Improvement = 1 point

  • At least one of the indicators improves or keeps the same score “A” or “B” and the others do not change.

“People displaced” refers to the number of people living in displacement as of the end of each year, and reflects the stock of people displaced at the end of the previous year, plus inflows of new cases arriving over the year as well as births over the year to those displaced, minus outflows which may include returnees, those who settled elsewhere, those who integrated locally, those who travelled over borders, and deaths).
