Falkingham, Jane and Ibragimova, Shamsia (2004) Children in transition: child poverty in The Kyrgyz Republic , Southampton, UK Southampton Statistical Sciences Research Institute 31pp. (S3RI Applications and Policy Working Papers, A04/19).

Record type: Monograph (Working Paper)


This paper examines trends in the prevalence and severity of child poverty in the Kyrgyz Republic since the mid 1990s. Poverty is a multi-dimensional phenomenon and trends in both monetary poverty, as measured by household expenditure, and capability poverty, as measured by education, health status and access to related social services, are discussed. Recent evidence on child food security is also presented. Using newly available panel data from the 1998-2001 Household Budget Survey, the paper also investigates the dynamics of childhood poverty, investigating the duration of material poverty and factors associated with movements in and out of poverty.
