Abstract A major drawback of First Order Stochastic Dominance approach is dominance indetermination. Levy and Leshno in 2002 suggested Almost Stochastic Dominance as a remedy in the uni-dimensional case. We introduce a Generalization of Almost First and second Order Dominance (MAFOD and MASOD) to the multidimensional case with application on child wellbeing in Egypt. We perform a multidimensional (FOD) analysis on seven deprivation indicators for three age-groups of children from Egypt 2014 Demographic and Health Survey (EDHS14). This methodology allows the ordinal ranking of regions and governorates of Egypt in terms of their children wellbeing based on their probability of domination. To solve the dominance indetermination we apply MAFOD and MASOD.
