Poverty: numbers and people

In 2001, the number of people living in poverty in the world stood between 1.698 and 1.846 billion people. These figures are the estimates of Zhou Xun and Michel Lubrano. The 200 million difference between these two numbers is not insignificant, as each one represents a human. Who are the people behind these numbers?
