This is a product of a tripartite cooperation among the Central Bureau of Statistics, the Planning and International Cooperation Commission of the Syrian Arab Republic, and the United Nation Children Fund in Syria in 2012. A detailed analysis of the datasets from the Family Health Surveys on the living standards and child wellbeing in Syria has resulted in two reports - The Multi-dimensional Poverty in Syria and The Multi-Dimensional Child Deprivation in Syria. It is for the first time in Syria that studies of this kind had been conducted using datasets from the Family Health Survey (2001) and the Family Household Health Survey (2009). These reports present the status and progression of poverty and deprivation from multiple dimensions, including education and health for the period 2001-2009. Among others, these reports will serve as the baseline to measure the impact of the crisis on living conditions in Syria in the future.
