A Multi-Dimensional Measure of Well-being among Youth: The Case of Palestinian Refugee Youth in Lebanon

No 1268, Working Papers from Economic Research Forum

Abstract: This paper develops a youth well-being index, which allows for the first time to expand the measurement of national well-being to cover non-nationals with a focus on young people. Using micro data from the 2015 socio-economic survey of Palestinian refugees conducted in Lebanon, the newly devised index allows to measure well-being along various dimensions including education, health, housing, employment and access to information. The index results across sub-regions and refugee groups show that a richer and more holistic measurement of youth human development can provide better tools for a more efficient and equitable targeting of scarce assistance funds.
