Metadata Glossary

Indicator NameAdequacy of benefits (%) - All Private Transfers -rural
Long definitionTotal transfer amount received by all beneficiaries in a population group as a share of the total welfare of beneficiaries in that group
Aggregation methodAggregated indicators are calculated using simple and weighted averages of country-level social protection indicators across categories (regions, country income groups and lending categories) using latest survey year available within 2010-2019. Weights are based on countries’ populations from the World Development Indicators (WDI) for the corresponding year of the indicator. “2010-2019 S” refers to simple averages and “2010-2019 W” refers to weighted averages.
Limitations and exceptionsWhen interpreting ASPIRE performance indicators based on household surveys, it is important to note that the extent to which information on specific transfers and programs is captured in the household surveys can vary a lot across countries. Moreover, household surveys do not capture the universe of social protection programs in the country, in best practice cases just the largest programs. As a consequence, ASPIRE indicators are not fully comparable across program categories and countries; however, they provide approximate measures of social protection systems performance. In addition, there may be cases where ASPIRE performance indicators differ from official WB country reports as ASPIRE indicators are based on a first level analysis of original survey data and unified methodology that does not necessarily reflect country-specific knowledge and in depth country analysis relying on administrative program level data and/or imputations.
