Poverty Mapping

"Poverty mapping" is a method to estimate the welfare level and the degree of inequality at lower aggregation levels such as township or ward. It uses a model of household expenditure from a survey dataset to estimate household welfare and apply it to a census dataset which does not include household expenditure or income information. Poverty indicators at the community level are then formed as aggregates.
