Poverty Mapping Project: Poverty and Food Security Case StudiesEntry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_PMP_PFSCS
Abstract: The Poverty and Food Security Case Studies dataset consists of small area estimates of poverty, inequality, food security and related measures for subnational administrative units in Mexico, Ecuador, Kenya, Malawi, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nigeria and Vietnam. These data come from country level cases studies that examine poverty and food security from a spatial analysis perspective. The data ... products include shapefiles (vector data) and tabular datasets (csv format). Additionally, a data catalog (xls format) containing detailed information and documentation is provided. This dataset is produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) and Centro Internacional de Agricultura Tropical (CIAT). The dataset was originally produced by CIAT, International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), International Water Management Institute (IWMI), and International Institute for Tropical Agriculture (IITA).
The data in Comma Separated Value (CSV) and ESRI Shapefile (SHP) formats are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
Purpose: To provide high spatial resolution subnational estimates of poverty and food security for use by a wide community for interdisciplinary studies of poverty, food security and the environment.
