The data for this paper was collected through a survey aimed at reviewing the socioeconomic conditions of the communities living along the Sudanese border between Eritrea and Ethiopia. The survey was conducted during July-August 2013 (Abdel Ati, ElTayeb Mohamadain, and Faiz Hamad ElNil 2014). Its main objectives include: Estimating poverty indices among eastern Sudan border communities. Measuring poverty levels and depth, and the decomposition of socioeconomic characteristics; Establishing a baseline for further research and analysis of poverty and livelihoods in the area as one of the few field-based studies; and Assisting decision-makers and other stakeholders at state and national levels by providing recommendations on appropriate policies and programming aimed at poverty reduction.
