Abstract
The national poverty reduction strategy requires a significant monitoring and evaluation effort and the production of key indicators. The Ministry of Health’s National Sentinel System (NSS) of linked demographic surveillance sites can produce many of these indicators. Based on data currently available from three sites directly managed by the Ministry of Health, this paper demonstrates what such an output might look like, and provides estimates of 16 poverty indicators for districts representing different urban and rural poverty welfare quintiles.
