Predicting Poverty Using Geospatial Data in Thailand
SHARE THIS PAGE
Results suggest that intensity of night lights and other variables that approximate population density are highly associated with the proportion of population living in poverty. The random forest technique yielded the highest level of prediction accuracy among the methods considered, perhaps due to its capability to fit complex association structures even with small and medium-sized datasets.
