ABSTRACT

The reduction of geographic inequalities is a powerful strategy to accelerate poverty reduction with equity.UNICEF conducted this study to better understand geographic disparities with regard to basic social services.

Analysis of the data from the 2009 Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), conducted jointly by the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics and UNICEF indicates that considerable disparities exist between districts and within districts between upazilas in terms of achieving MDGs. MICS 2009 is the only national survey providing data for key MDG indicators down to the upazila level.
