This technical note, jointly written by Save the Children and UNICEF, summarizes the assumptions, analyses and methods used to expand and update the projections of the impact of COVID-19 on child poverty and children living in monetary poor households. As children suffer poverty differently from adults, a direct measure incorporating the actual material shortcomings suffered by children is needed. Thus, UNICEF has estimated the level, breadth and severity of child poverty, based on shortcomings in six dimensions: education, health, housing, nutrition, sanitation and water.
