Multidimensional Child Poverty and Deprivation in Uganda, 2019

Volumes 1 and 2


This report represents the successful integration of multidimensional child poverty measures in national statistics. In doing so it provides a better understanding of child poverty in Uganda by augmenting Uganda’s rich tradition of poverty analysis with a more deprivation-centred analytical tool.

Capitalising on this methodological innovation, reflected in the quantitative and qualitative analysis presented in Volumes 1 and 2, an additional objective of this analysis is to support Government’s efforts to transition from child poverty measurement to action by identifying specific areas of deprivation suffered by children to strengthen the delivery of basic services, and ultimately improve the implementation of national programmes affecting children.
