This atlas of socioeconomic indicators of Nepal is the outcome of a collaboration between ICIMOD and Nepal's Central Bureau of Statistics, supported by SNV-Nepal. Different socioeconomic indicators were abstracted at district level from the data gathered under the National Population Census of Nepal held in June 2001, supplemented by other relevant sources. The indicators are presented district-wise in the form of thematic maps grouped under eight themes (population, economic activity, infrastructure, health and environment, education, children, gender, and agriculture). Trend analyses were also prepared for selected indicators based on the census data from four consecutive censuses and presented in maps to indicate the changes over a forty-year period. The companion interactive multimedia CD-ROM contains all the indicators shown in the atlas in the form of maps, together with simple GIS functionalities that allow the user to browse and query and prepare different graphical representations, and with the flexibility to allow users to add customised indicators. This book should prove useful to the many people working at district and national level in policy making, planning, and development who need to use socioeconomic indicators in their work, as well as to development practitioners in general, researchers and students, and the public large.
