Access to electricity is essential not just for lighting, communication, and basic home appliances, but also the potential for enterprise and greater development. Alas, over 500 million people lack access to electricity in sub-Saharan Africa.
Compounding the challenge of expanding access to electricity is the lack of comprehensive data on the subject. To attempt to predict the extent of electrification based on Nighttime Lights data, I trained a supervised classification model.
