Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis

In order to complement traditional income-based measures of poverty with multidimensional deprivation analysis and to generate quality evidence on child poverty and disparities, UNICEF developed the Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (MODA). MODA adopts a holistic definition of child wellbeing, concentrating on the access of children to various goods and services which are crucial for their survival and development. It recognizes that a child’s experience of deprivations is multi-faceted and interrelated, and that such multiple and overlapping deprivations are more likely to occur, and with greater adverse effects, in socio-economically disadvantaged groups.

SPRI Global’s partnership with UNICEF Algeria was focused on training a selection of members of a local research institute (Conseil National Économique et Social) in child poverty analyses using the MODA methodology. The training sessions equipped the participants with the necessary knowledge for carrying out in-house child poverty studies using the MODA method. In addition, the project included a “Training of Trainers” component to ensure participants could train other local counterparts to child poverty measurement (including the MODA tool). Face-to-face training sessions were held in Algiers where participants were introduced to the concepts of child poverty measurement and trained to the application of MODA on a nationally representative dataset (MICS 2012). The face-to-face training sessions were supplemented by remote assistance provided by SPRI Global.
