Small area estimation (sae) is a mathematical technique for extracting more detailed information from existing data sources by statistical modelling. The estimates are often mapped, so the technique is often generically called poverty mapping. These maps and estimates (together with estimates of accuracy) are key information in aid allocation within a country. They are also increasingly important inputs to negotiations on allocation of international aid to particular countries.
