This study aims to identify the educational deprivation of children in Iran and to examine the factors affecting the deprivation at both individual and household levels. At individual level, the effects of socio-demographic characteristics of the family and other factors on the educational situation of children aged 17-30 years are examined. At household level, the effects of household-related factors on the number of children deprived from education in the household are investigated.
