MULTIDIMENSIONAL POVERTY IN MOROCCO: EDUCATION MATTERS

MULTIDIMENSIONAL POVERTY IN MOROCCO: EDUCATION MATTERS

This study aims to investigate the poverty in Moroccan regions according to the new regional divisions.We used the latest available Demographic Health Survey (DHS) in Morocco (2011) which concerns 15 343 households. It is based on the multidimensional poverty method, which consists of constructing a synthetic indicator composed of three dimensions (education of household members, health, and access to household utilities and living conditions). Our findings show that, among the Moroccan regions, there are relevant disparities in terms of multidimensional poverty and that education has a major contribution to poverty compared to health and living standards.
