This chapter presents an analysis of child poverty in Morocco using three different methods for identifying poor children: a monetary approach using the national poverty line methodology; a deprivation approach based on a child deprivation index; and a combined multidimensional measure, including both monetary and deprivation dimensions. The results are based on secondary data analysis of the 2001 Household Expenditure and Consumption Survey (HECS). The chapter looks at how poverty has been measured in Morocco, presents and discusses analysis of the HECS, and makes policy recommendations for both improving poverty measurement and reducing child poverty in Morocco.
