Poverty Mapping Project: Poverty and Food Security Case Studies

Metadata Updated: December 19, 2017

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 the 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).
