The overarching goal of the analysis is to generate an in-depth map about the various facets of child poverty and establish sound and thorough empirical evidence.
- to portray child poverty in terms of demographic and geographic indicators, including a profile of the children who are most at risk of poverty and, consequently, of exclusion;
- to understand how child poverty relates to overall household poverty;
- to investigate non-income aspects of child poverty, primarily education—including early childhood education—and health and set the stage for its multidimensionality; and
- to use generated evidence for increasing the awareness of the public and decision makers on the issue, and for advocacy for tailoring well-targeted policies and measures to improve specific outcomes pertinent to children reducing child poverty in the country.
