One of the problems here is that data may be even less reliable for the urban poor than for other groups in developing countries. Are household surveys really covering everyone who lives in the street, in slums and informal settlements? And properly correcting for the differences in urban and rural prices? Both for research and for service provision, I'm not sure the scale of the problem is well understood - more specific surveys and censuses on the number and living conditions of the urban poor are needed.
