Milestone 2: Measuring child poverty

Measurement is central. Without knowing how many children are living in poverty, we cannot know how we are progressing to the goal, or the impacts of particularly policies and programmes on child poverty. Technically measuring child poverty is not difficult, yet there can be a number of options that can confuse and it does require some particular statistical expertise.

Milestone 2 includes:

  • Understanding what is available (and not) to measure child poverty
  • Selecting the most appropriate child poverty measures (for now and for the future) 
  • Producing child poverty rates
  • Country examples
