Introduction: The Malawi 2004-2005 Integrated Household Survey (IHS2) was a comprehensive socioeconomic survey of the living standards of households in Malawi.1 The National Statistics Office administered the IHS2 household questionnaire to 11,280 households from March 2004- April 2005. The survey was designed so that information gathered could be used for, among other things, an assessment of the incidence of poverty in the population at the district level and above. Poverty is that condition in which basic needs of a household (or individual) are not met. Clearly it is a multidimensional concept. Nevertheless, for purposes of identifying the poor using international standards, a monetary measure is developed as a welfare indicator for each household. Using this monetary measure, households can be ranked from richest to poorest. By developing a poverty line (a monetary threshold, below which a household is labeled as poor), households can be further described as poor or non-poor. For more nuanced classification, multiple poverty lines can be developed, for example, to identify the ultra poor.
