In this study, we combined the Cambodian socioeconomic survey for 1997 and the
country’s population census of 1998 to produce poverty measures at the commune-level
in Cambodia using the small-area estimation technique developed by Elbers, Lanjouw
and Lanjouw. While there are a number of communes for which the standard errors
associated with the estimates are too high, we found that they are on average small
enough to be useful. We illustrate the application of poverty maps with reference to
education programmes.
