Comparative Judgment on Deprivation in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania


A comparative judgment data set on deprivation in subwards in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Citizens were shown pairs of subwards at random and asked which was more deprived. If they said they were equal, one of the pair was chosen at random to be more deprived. The data was collected in August 2018. The gender of each judge is also included.




A csv file containing 75078 rows and 3 columns. Each row corresponds to a judgement made by a single judge. Columns 2 and 3 shows which of the pair of subwards was judged to be poorest and richest, and column 3 shows the gender of the judge.
