New poverty maps

For many years we had a simple poverty map based on 1995 data. However, today we are 20 years down the road, so we actually hope that poverty patterns have changed.

I recently discovered that Havestchoice made a new set of poverty maps (including density, gap, severity), at 1.25 usd and 2 usd poverty line for the year 2005.
Still quite old and not up to date to the new poverty lines of 1.9 usd and 3 usd per day... however it is a huge progress compared to the old data we did not dare to show anymore.
