Monetary and Multidimensional Child Poverty Study using MODA in Mongolia

In Mongolia 3 different N-MODA analyses were carried out; a national study and 2 studies at lower levels (Khuvgsul province and Nalaikh district). In order to conduct the analysis, the datasets MICS4, MICS5 and Household and Socio-Economic Surveys (HSES) 2012 were used. The N-MODA took into account both monetary poverty and non-monetary poverty definitions (and the overlap between monetary and non-monetary poverty) to calculate the child poverty rate in Mongolia.

The project outputs included:

  • Capacity building
  • Summary reports
    • Child Monetary- and Multidimensional Poverty in Mongolia (Nalaikh District) – A summary report
    • Child Monetary- and Multidimensional Poverty in Mongolia (Khuvsul Aimag) – A summary report
    • Child Monetary- and Multidimensional Poverty in Mongolia – A summary report
  • Final report: Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis for Children in Mongolia.

The results of the study have been published on the N-MODA portal for Mongolia.
