Poverty mapping in developing countries has become an important tool in identifying ways to improve living standards. The most commonly methods used until now to generate poverty maps have drawn on models who do not take into account the spatial dependence that may exist in human societies with regard to income distribution. In this report, the authors use spatial regression to model more accurately the distribution of poverty across regions in Ecuador. Although the geographic focus of this paper is in Ecuador, its major contribution is methodological.
