Cambodia - Estimation of Poverty Rates at Commune-Level: Using the Small-Area Estimation Technique to Obtain Reliable Estimates, October 2002
The purpose of this report is to provide refined poverty maps for Cambodia using the recently developed small-area estimation technique. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has created poverty maps that identify poor areas and used them for targeting. In particular, WFP has published a poverty map that combines the census data and socio-economic survey data (WFP, 2001) as the preliminary results. The final poverty maps presented in this report have been produced as part of our continued efforts to produce a set of more accurate maps.
