Tier 1

Tier 1 of the IDA19 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 five categories: (1) WBG goals of poverty eradication and boosting shared prosperity; (2) sustainable and inclusive growth; (3) human capital; (4) resilience and sustainability; and (5) institutional capacity.

GDP per person employed (Constant 2017 PPP $)

GDP per person employed is gross domestic product (GDP) divided by total employment in the economy. Purchasing power parity (PPP) GDP is GDP converted to 2017 constant international dollars using PPP rates. An international dollar has the same purchasing power over GDP that a U.S. dollar has in the United States. Aggregation is weighted average.

SUSTAINABLE AND INCLUSIVE GROWTH

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.

Prevalence of stunting among children under 5 years of age (%)

Prevalence of stunting is the percentage of children under age 5 whose height for age is more than two standard deviations below the median for the international reference population ages 0-59 months. For children up to two years old height is measured by recumbent length. For older children height is measured by stature while standing. The data are based on the WHO's new child growth standards released in 2006. Aggregation is linear mix-effect model estimates. Data is reported for all IDA eligible countries, including blend countries, in a reporting fiscal year.

Maternal mortality ratio (number of maternal deaths per 100,000 live births)

Maternal mortality ratio is the number of women who die from pregnancy-related causes while pregnant or within 42 days of pregnancy termination per 100,000 live births. The data are estimated with a regression model using information on the proportion of maternal deaths among non-AIDS deaths in women ages 15-49, fertility, birth attendants, and GDP. Aggregation is weighted average. Data is reported for all IDA eligible countries, including blend countries, in a reporting fiscal year.

Percentage of IDA countries with positive or zero changes in wealth per capita, based on a country’s Adjusted Net Savings (ANS), which indicates a country’s ability to sustain income and welfare for its (growing) population in the future. ANS is based on gross national savings adjusted for changes in all assets: physical (i.e. depreciation of fixed capital), human (e.g. education expenditure), and natural capital (i.e. mineral, energy, and forest depletion), and accounting for the wealth-diluting effects of population growth.

INSTITUTIONAL CAPACITY

Number of IDA countries that have an improved composite PEFA score

No. of IDA countries that have an improved composite PEFA score in dimensions across the pillars of budget reliability, transparency of public finances, and control in budget execution.

(1.1) Aggregate expenditure outturn

(9.1) Public access to fiscal information

(24.2) Procurement methods

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.

No improvement Negative movement, and no change in D or C scores = 0 points

  • Negative change 
  • All other options except the mentioned above under significant improvement and improvement

Unweighted average increase in tax-to-GDP ratio in those IDA countries with tax revenues below 15

This indicator is a key measure of Domestic Resource Mobilization (DRM) tracking the number of IDA countries with tax revenues persistently (i.e. over a three-year period) below 15 percent of their GDP. The indicator is associated with IDA19 policy commitment no. 3 under the Governance & Institutions (G&I) Special Theme focused on the implementation of country programs which support the efforts of those IDA countries with tax revenues persistently below 15 percent of GDP to achieve an unweighted average increase in tax-to-GDP ratios of one percentage point over the three-year IDA cycle, as part of collective efforts with partners.
