Methodology

Methodology: Ward population and household data was scraped from "National Population Census 2011 Household and Population by Sex Ward" PDFs collected by Nepal Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) with accompanying CBS codes and joined with district and VDC p-codes/HLCIT codes in "Nepal Population Statistics (Census)" by Ewan Oglethorpe & Gaurab Pradhan (Nepal Shelter Cluster) with support from Neil Horning (Digital Humanitarian Network).

A list of Wards above 1500 meters was compiled using 25k and 50k sheets from the Survey Department of Nepal with contour lines at an interval of 20 meters spatially joined with ward shape files by Muhammad Imran Khan (OCHA) and merged with the above by Shelter Cluster."
