Household Education Spending - Methological Guidelines

E-mail Print PDF


Given the lack of statistics on expenses incurred by households on their children’s education, review of education financing is often limited to that of public expenditure, making it difficult to have objective discussions on private education financing.

The Pôle de Dakar, as part of its statistical and analytical production activities, has developed a method for assessing household education spending, per child and per level of education, based on household surveys. This method proves particulary useful when education expenditure for households is not disaggregated for each enrolled child. Thus, the main goal of this note is to document this methodological and technical approach.
