Abstract: 

Intuition: Poverty results in many different problems which adversely affect one's quality of life. Children build future of every society. The better development of the children, the better society in the future will be. Children in poverty are more vulnerable than the adults, because they are more dependent on the supports of the parents and their environments. The main aim of this study is to identify status of the children in poverty, which can provide a guideline for the policy makers and enabled them to tackle child poverty and to optimally design targeting schemes.
Methodology: This study provides detailed picture of child poverty in 22 different districts of city of Tehran in 2008. To this end, Foster, Greer, Thorbecke (1984) poverty index is used. Child poverty is identified with their head of household's characteristics, including their education level, gender, age, and size of the household.

Children at the households whose heads are deprived of higher education qualification with informal job, are more likely to be poor.
