PMMA-20140 Monetary and Multidimensional Child Poverty


We investigate the effect of parental education on the concordance/discordance between monetary and multidimensional child poverty. First, in a simple model of parental investment in child outcomes, we demonstrate that the misalignment between household income and parental education is a predictor of the mismatch between monetary and multidimensional child poverty. Indeed, a match between these two poverty measurements occurs whenever household income and parental education are correlated. Second, using Tanzania NPS data, we nd that parental education has a negative effect on the probability that a monetarily non-poor child suffers some basic deprivations, and a positive effect on the likelihood that a mon- etarily poor child suffers no basic deprivations.
