Child Well-being in Ethiopia

Analysis of child poverty using the HCE/WMS 2011 datasets report


This report was prepared jointly by the Central Statistical Agency (CSA) of Ethiopia and Oxford Policy Management (OPM), with the support of UNICEF. The report builds on an analysis of survey data from the Household Consumption and Expenditure Survey (HCES) and the Welfare Monitoring Survey (WMS)2010/11.

The objective of this report is to address the evidence gap with respect to child poverty and wellbeing statistics in Ethiopia. In so doing, we have opted for a hands-on participatory approach so as to build the capacity of the CSA to analyse data that they collect. The report mainly focuses on money metric analysis of poverty but also looks at some important non-monetary measures of welfare.
