Bangladesh - Local Estimation of Poverty and Malnutrition, May 2004

Indicators for poverty and malnutrition were therefore estimated by applying a variant of the small area estimation technique as pioneered by the World Bank. A five percent sample of the 2001 population census was used in combination with the 2000 Household Income and Expenditure Survey to derive estimates of the poverty incidence, gap and severity at the sub-district level. Estimates were also calculated for average caloric intake and food poverty. Malnutrition estimates are based on the 2000 Child Nutrition Survey.
