Description:

Over the past decade many countries in the developing world conducted poverty mapping or have produced poverty atlases. There is a reason for that. Income and wealth distributions are important for evaluating and monitoring development, including national development plans and the Millennium Development Goals, for example. Wealth distributions are determinants of specific socio-economic outcomes, such as health, education, crime and related phenomena of inequality. Gaining knowledge of the spatial distribution of welfare is important to focus development interventions to those areas where poverty or inequality is largest.\\r\\n\\r\\nThis atlas has used several ways of presenting poverty. One way has been to combine elements of the Income and Household Expenditure Surveys, conducted by the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) every five years, with the more extensive coverage of Population and Housing Censuses, held every ten years. This combination allows one to estimate expenditure for smaller areas than possible with survey data alone, without compromising the anonymity of the respondents. With the advances in the information society it is becoming more and more important to disseminate information at a more detailed level.\\r\\n\\r\\nSince 2001 the CBS has been developing its capacity to deal with spatial aspects of statistics through training staff and establishing a Geographical Information System. This atlas builds on this experience and uses data from the 2001 Population and Housing Census and the 2003-2004 Household Income and Expenditure Survey, besides a number of welfare indicators that are not immediately related to income and expenditure.\\r\\n\\r\\nThe result is impressive although this atlas does not pretend to present a comprehensive analysis of poverty in Namibia. Quite a number of subjects are not touched at all. As such it is rather an introduction to small area welfare or poverty mapping in Namibia, and the first of its kind in our country. The recently finalised 2009-2010 Household Income and Expenditure Survey and the upcoming 2011 Population and Housing Census will provide a new dataset that will allow us and our stakeholders to monitor the changes since the previous rounds of surveys and censuses in a quantitative way. In this sense, the present work is complementary to the more qualitative participatory poverty assessments that were held a few years ago.
