Example #2: Measurement Inside Egypt.

Some statistics about Giza, Benisuef, AlMinia, Assiout, Souhag, Qena, and Aswan showed that these cities have a number of 941 of total of 1000 of the poorest villages in Egypt, 2125518 families and 980433 of them are poor families and all of these are located at the upper Egypt. So, 94 percent of the poorest villages are located south of Egypt. Also, statistics showed the percentage of poverty in many regions over Egypt, as 78 percent in Qena, 75 percent in upper rural, 49 percent in lower rural, 50 percent in upper urban, and finally 30 percent in lower urban Egypt. In 2009, it was revealed that a person who spends less than 197 per month is considered in poverty and a person who spends less than 148 per month is considered in extreme poverty. Surprisingly, in 141 of the poorest villages in the south, individuals spend less than 131 monthly which are considered much lower than the extreme.
