The goal of the follow-up to the assessment of the social and economic impact of COVID-19 on children, is to generate scenarios and expanded policy proposals in a situation where it is certain that this will be a protracted crisis, both from a health and from a socio-economic perspective, and where we can verify the validity of the initial assumptions of its nature and duration.
The overarching goal of the proposed study on multidimensional child poverty in North Macedonia is to generate an in-depth map on the issue and establish sound and thorough empirical evidence.
i) 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;
ii) to understand how child poverty relates to overall household poverty;
iii) to investigate non-income aspects of child poverty, primarily education—including early childhood education—and health and set the stage for its multidimensionality; and
iv) 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.
