Abstract

Relationships are often found between socio-economic variables and environmental factors for relatively small study regions. This research forms an exploratory data analysis using logistic regression to explore the (non-causal) relationships between socio-economic variables from a national census (female literacy and involvement in economic alternatives to agricultural work) and environmental metrics extracted from Earth observation (EO) data. The relationships observed often supported those found in the literature and field observations. The research highlighted the limited but potentially valuable use of EO data for monitoring socio-economic conditions which may be used to target development assistance in the future.
