Poverty Map

A Poverty Map is a spatial representation of poverty indicators at disaggregated geographical regions.  It gives an overview of the disparities that exist in poverty level within a country.
The Statistics Mauritius has produced, with technical support from World Bank, two Poverty Maps one for 2001/02 and another one for 2006/07.  The maps depict the poverty rate in each of the 145 administrative regions (20 Municipal Wards - MWs, 124 Village Council Areas - VCAs and Island of Rodrigues) of the country.
