Spatial Disparities in Human Development  

Project name/title
Spatial Disparities in Human Development
Year:
2002
Theme:
Poverty, Inequality and Well-being
Abstract:
Many developing and transition countries have considerable regional variation in average household income, poverty, and in health and educational status. National human development indicators can therefore mislead policy-makers when large regional disparities exist. This project will investigate the size and determinants of regional disparities in a representative selection of countries. It will use indicators such as poverty incidence and depth, within-region income inequality, human development, and gender indicators to better understand why some regions fall behind in the development process.
