Cross-country poverty measures

PovcalNet by the World Bank allows you to obtain a cross-country data of poverty.

See Chen and Ravallion (2010) for the methodology behind the data.

See also Pinkovskiy and Sala-I-Martin (2016) on the caution against the use of household survey means to obtain the fraction of people in poverty.
