Consulting Services For Poverty Analysis, Profiling And Mapping REQUEST FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST CONSULTING SERVICES FOR Poverty Analysis, Profiling and Mapping Government of the Sudan Central Bureau of Statistics Statistical CapacityBuilding Project (TFSCB) Grant No.:  TF 017246 Assignment Title: Consultancy for Poverty Analysis,Profiling and Mapping The Republic of the Sudan has received financing from the WorldBank toward the cost of the Sudan Statistical Capacity Building Project (TFSCB)  andintends to apply part of the proceeds for consulting services. The consulting services Poverty Analysis, Profiling andMapping   include:- 1.     Develop key poverty indicators based on HBPS 2014/15. This would involves generating relevant poverty indicators i.e.poverty headcounts, inequality across different demographics, socio- economic groups, and regional classifications. 2.     Provide comparable Poverty estimates. This would entail generating comparable poverty estimates for 2009 with2014/2015. This activity is necessitated by the fact that the 2014/15 survey has a food recall period of10 days instead of 7 dayswhile the 2009 covered only 7 days. This implies that different weekdays are covered by recall depending on the weekdays of theinterviews. In Sudan consumption is usually higher on Fridays. Thus, households interviewed between Wednesday and Fridays arelikelyto have higher consumption than other households. Further, the2014/15 survey includes 49 additional food items and 71 additionalnon-food items compared to the survey from 2009.  It can be assumed that thoseadditional items were under-reported. In addition, the 2009 survey wasin a different month than all ofthe new survey rounds this can introduce a seasonal bias when comparing the 2009 with the new estimates. Therefore, it will beimportant to make the poverty estimates comparable. 3.     Develop and submit to CBS a note on poverty estimates and profiling. Basedon the indicators generated prepare a note onSudan poverty profile. 4.     Generate and submit to CBS poverty maps that cover 18 States with estimates for small areas (locality level) using thedata from 2008 Populationand housing census and the HBPS 2014/2015. This exercise will involvecombining the 2008 Population censusand 2014/15 survey data. The 2008 census was the fifth population census of Sudan. In addition to information on population demographiccharacteristics, it captures information on durable goods and other assets, source of lighting, housing conditions, source ofincome, migration, education, labor force participation, fertility, mortality, and agriculture. 5.     Disseminate final outputs including notes on poverty profile and mapping.
