Child Poverty in Tanzania Report 2016
National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) and UNICEF
The Child Poverty in Tanzania Report was developed by the National Bureau of Statistics, in collaboration with UNICEF, using the dataset of the National Panel Survey conducted in 2012-2013.
The analysis used the multiple overlapping deprivation (MODA) methodology, developed by the UNICEF Office of Research and the University of Bristol.
The report findings are based on a new comprehensive estimate of child multidimensional poverty specific to Tanzania that goes beyond monetary income. It takes into account children’s access to nutrition, health, protection, education, information, sanitation, water, and housing across four age groups (0-23 months; 24-59 months 5-13 years and 14-17 years).
