We will be using the MMQGIS plugin Select feature to select low income countries in the World are in the Africa region. This Selection will create a new layer named African Low Income Countries
The polygon shapes in brown are the countries around the world whose income are the lowest. See screenshot below.
Taking a look at the attribute table, one would observe that the continental region of each Low income country is contained in the column- Region-un
On the upper main menu bar, Go to the MMQGIS Plugin > Search/Select > Select
In the Select processing window, Select the Source layer, Select Attribute and Value, give the output shapefile a name and OK.
The output layer-AfricanLowincomecountries is added to the Layers window.
