Global distribution of poverty January 18, 2008

Posted by Darren in Geography.

The Global Poverty Mapping Project seeks to enhance current understanding of the global distribution of poverty and the geographic and biophysical conditions of where the poor live. Over 300 poverty maps are offered at a number of spatial scales and a publication, “Where the Poor Are: An Atlas of Poverty”  includes information about how some of this data has been used in poverty interventions. Persons looking for data for their own research may want to consider downloading the subnational and national poverty data sets that are made available here.
