ABSTRACT

Children account for 45 per cent of the total population of Bangladesh (estimated at 140.3 million people in 2006). One in every six children is a working child, with an estimated 7.42 million working children across the country.

To date, however, there has been no comprehensive study on child poverty and deprivation based on hard evidence, and no published data on child poverty and deprivation at the national level. This report aims to fill that gap.
