Child Poverty in Tanzania (2016)
Summary note and report
This report presents the first national estimates of child monetary and deprivation poverty in Tanzania. A multidimensional child poverty indicator (MCPI) has been developed using UNICEF’s Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (MODA) methodology applied to the Tanzanian context and using the National Panel Survey (NPS) datasets. The resulting national measure of multidimensional poverty, along with an estimate of child monetary poverty are both defined and explained in order to build a comprehensive understanding of the extent of child well-being in Tanzania.
