Data for the Regional and Provincial Analyses of Households’ Economic Well-Being in Burkina Faso.

Oct 04, 2020


Published in: Data Article

Although household and business surveys generally collect regional codes, indicators are usually not tabulated by that dimension in international comparisons [13], as a result information on the extent of regional disparities or dispersion within countries is often unavailable [11]. This is why a call was made for collaboration between international organizations and G20 countries and partner countries to make regional data available, by advancing on methods to make microdata more accessible for progress [12]. The present data article inscribes itself within this context with the aim of bridging the above highlighted data gap. We achieve this by capitalizing on the 2014 Burkina Faso’s National Survey on Households Living Conditions, to provide regional and provincial levels aggregated households’ welfare indicators, along with socio-economic and demographic characteristics in Burkina Faso. The presented welfare extract, which covers 10411 households distributed across 45 provinces, and grouped into 13 administrative regions, is further supplemented with geospatial meta-data for analyses in the space dimension.
