Childhood in Angola
A multidimensional analysis of child poverty
This study aims at defining and measuring national multidimensional child poverty in Angola using the Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (MODA) methodology developed by UNICEF. The project consists of an in-depth analysis of child deprivation and vulnerability in that country using the Angola Multiple Indicators and Health Survey (IIMS) 2015-2016. This makes it possible to identify who the deprived children are, and the deprivations they face among the set of dimensions that were nationally identified as impeding their survival and development. The analysis identifies to what extent children in Angola are deprived in terms of adequate access to nutrition, health, child protection, malaria prevention, education, information, housing, water and sanitation.
