The Poverty Line is a measure of the percentage of the population living below the minimum income level, as defined by the World Bank. The Gini Index measures the difference between the highest and lowest earning members of that country - it measures income inequality. Countries with both very rich and very poor residents have a high Gini Coefficent, whilst countries with big middle classes have a low score. Household Income is a measure of average income levels while consumption looks at whether most private expenditure is on necessities such as food, typical of poorer countries, or includes lots of discretionary purchases and disposable income, typical of richer countries.
