Abstract: Pakistan is severely disadvantaged by its failure to achieve higher levels of human development. Low enrolment thirty years ago is reflected in the lower educational level of today’s labor force, lower productivity and lower adaptation of technology. Even today less than half of the school-age children are going to school. Some common but many of them disputed perceptions about lower school-enrolment rate, at the household level are that the younger age children, younger in their brothers and sisters, male children, and the children from educated parents; high-income households; smaller households; wealthy households are more likely to be in school. We have analyzed these determinants for urban Pakistani children and framed some policy recommendations.
