Practical guide to small area estimation of poverty using remotely sensed variables – Bangladesh example

A practical guide to statistical modelling of poverty at small administrative areas, i.e. Small Area Estimation. This book demonstrates how to leverage remotely sensed data in combination with household surveys to produce spatially disaggregated poverty statistics. It introduces theoretical concepts, and provides a step-by-step walkthough of the estimation procedure in R. You can follow the guide from the start (Chapter 1), or, if you are familiar with theory and want to dive straight into the estimation – skip to the practical part.
