About

The document presents the results of a pilot assessment of the indicator of multidimensional child poverty in Belarus.

The SDG indicator 1.2.1 “Percentage of the population of the country living below the national poverty line” (absolute or monetary poverty) reflects the proportion of Belarusian population with average per capita disposable resources below the minimum subsistence budget. Multidimensional poverty measures complement monetary poverty measures by capturing the deprivations that each child faces in key dimensions such as health, education, living conditions etc.
