The Chinese government reported eradicating rural extreme poverty at the end of 2020, a significant achievement. Goal 1 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) is to end poverty in all its forms everywhere, and Goal 1.2 is to “reduce at least by half the proportion of men, women, and children of all ages living in poverty in all its dimensions according to national definitions by 2030.” Measures of child poverty in China from both monetary and multidimensional perspectives would be timely for China’s post-2020 anti-poverty policy agenda.
