Mapping poverty using mobile phone and satellite data Bangladesh Data Visualisation

This page allows you to visualise the Bangladesh poverty maps available on the WorldPop website. These maps were created using Bayesian model-based geostatistics in combination with high resolution gridded spatial covariates and aggregated mobile phone data applied to geolocated household survey data on poverty from the DHS wealth index, the Progress out of Poverty Index, and household income.

Resolution Comparisons

Estimates for Bangladesh showing poverty based on the DHS wealth index predicted at the Upazila sub-district level, and predicted at fine-scale polygons created by estimating mobile phone tower coverage.
