    Abstract

    When vulnerable population groups are numerically small -- as is often the case -- obtaining representative welfare estimates from non-purposive sample surveys becomes an issue. Building on a method developed by Elbers et al. , it is shown how, for census years, estimates of consumption poverty for small vulnerable populations can be derived by combining sample survey and population census information. The approach is illustrated for Uganda, for which poverty amongst households with disabled heads is determined. Copyright 2005, Oxford University Press.
