This data was collected through field surveys conducted in all four provinces of Pakistan (Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), Punjab and Sindh). Within the KPK province Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) could not be covered because of political insurgency in those areas at the time when survey was conducted. A questionnaire was structured, tested in pilot areas and revised for improvements based on feedback. With a team of 40 students from Balochistan University of Information Technology Engineering and Management Science (BUITEMS), Quetta, a survey was conducted in 43 urban and rural settings during the months of August to December, 2009. Using multistage stratified random sampling design, 963 heads-of-household were interviewed and data on a total of 2,496 children were collected.

The potential of different business approaches to reduce poverty and marginality depends on the characteristics of different regions and people living in these regions. Here, (a) population density, (b) accessibility, e.g. in terms of mobile phone, internet and road connections, as well as (c) the predominant form of livelihood and/or farming systems may be important factors determining market sizes and transaction costs and thus incentives to invest in these markets. This map is an overlay of these different indicators. Greenish colors show irrigated or perennial areas, brownish colors pastoralist, agro-pastoralist and arid areas and reddish colors indicate areas dominated by different other farming patterns. The lighter the color the lower the population and road density. For the classification of population and connectivity values being ‘high’ or ‘low’ the national mean value is used as threshold.
