Abstract: This study analyzes the impact of equivalence scales, including cost of children and economies of scale issues, on child poverty and its determinants. The analysis of determinants uses the least squares method corrected for heteroscedasticity. The data used come from the integrated survey on household living conditions with budget and consumption modules carried out in the Republic of Guinea in 1994-1995. The results of the analysis indicate that the child poverty rate and gap are largely influenced by the proportion of children in the population, in particular among poor households. Furthermore, our results highlight a relatively significant sensitivity of the poverty indices to equivalence scale used, in particular to children cost and economies of scale factor levels. Geographic isolation, education level of household and small livestock ownship seem to be key elements in the characterization of household and child poverty in Guinea.
