Description

The Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (MODA) is a methodological approach to the estimation of child multidimensional poverty. This N-MODA web portal presents the results of the child multidimensional poverty analysis using the MODA methodology to identify, locate, and create a profile of children who are poor for multiple dimensions in Cameroon. The analysis uses the most recent data from the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) 2014 to identify the type, level, and overlap of deprivations faced by children in Cameroon.

The analysis considers deprivations in dimensions of child well-being, such as, health, nutrition, housing, water, sanitation, young child development, child protection, protection against violence, education and information. Children are grouped according to their progression in the life cycle. Three age groups have therefore been considered, the 0 to 4 years, 5 to 11 years and 12 to 17 years. More information regarding the definition of the parameters of the analysis, age groups, dimensions, indicators and deprivation thresholds, can be found at the 'Analysis Parameters' document under the 'Background Materials' section on the right.
