Poverty is often associated with a shortage of financial means as a result of which basic needs such as food, housing and education cannot be provided. On the basis of Vietnamese data this dissertation shows that children in families with sufficient financial means do not necessarily go to school or drink clean water. Contrarily, children who lack certain basic provisions do not necessarily live in a family with a shortage of financial means. This result has consequences both for the way we can create an adequate image of child poverty, and for the policy that is needed to combat child poverty.
