Low-Income Lives: Education

Analyzing the flow of money spent on schooling in Bangladeshi households

The "Low-Income Lives" series provides an opportunity to learn how poor people manage their lives, based on solid data from ground-breaking field research.

This edition of the series looks at education, using data from the Hrishipara Daily Financial Diaries, a project which collects data from householders in central Bangladesh about how much money came into and went out of their hands each day, and for what purpose. The ongoing project has been running since mid-2015 and is building a uniquely rich and accurate understanding of the financial lives of the poor.
