A multiple overlapping deprivation analysis


The report provides a comprehensive analysis of both monetary and non-monetary child poverty in Zambia. It is the first time that national level monetary poverty and multidimensional child poverty for Zambia has been measured using the same data set. The estimates have been generated using the 2015 Living Conditions Monitoring Survey data set. With the child population accounting for 52 per cent of the overall population, this is an important undertaking by Government and UNICEF. This analysis is an important step in understanding child poverty and child deprivation in Zambia. The analysis shall inform policy makers and programme managers with concrete and relevant evidence.
