DATASET: 2011 estimates of mean DHS wealth index score per grid square, and associated uncertainty metrics.

REGION: Asia

SPATIAL RESOLUTION: 0.00833333 decimal degrees (approx. 1km at the equator)

PROJECTION: Geographic, WGS84

UNITS: DHS wealth index score (poverty dataset); standard deviation (uncertainty dataset)

MAPPING APPROACH: Bayesian model-based geostatistics in combination with high resolution gridded spatial covariates and aggregated mobile phone data applied to GPS-located household survey data on poverty from the DHS Program.

DATASET: 2013 estimates of mean likelihood of living in poverty per grid square, as defined by $2.50 a day poverty line, and associated uncertainty metrics.

REGION: Asia

SPATIAL RESOLUTION: 0.00833333 decimal degrees (approx. 1km at the equator)

PROJECTION: Geographic, WGS84

UNITS: Mean likelihood of living on less than $2.50 a day (poverty dataset); standard deviation (uncertainty dataset)

MAPPING APPROACH: Bayesian model-based geostatistics in combination with high resolution gridded spatial covariates applied to GPS-located household survey data on poverty from the Progress out of Poverty Index.
