Abstract:This study assesses the impact of the violence in Iraq in 2003-2010 on the education of
individuals aged 7-23 years. The Iraq Body Count and the 2011 Iraqi Multiple Indicator Cluster
Survey were used which included 26,336 households and 83,121 persons. Governorates of high
intensity of violence yielded a larger difference between expected and observed completed levels
of education compared to governorates of low intensity. Participants in secondary cohort are
estimated to complete 0.081 (95%CI 0.066, 0.96) levels of schooling compared to 0.78 (95%CI
0.771, 0.784) levels in primary cohort. Living in a household that is classified as “richest” via the
wealth index quintile, and in a household whose head has had a secondary or post-secondary
education yielded greater estimates for completing one-level of schooling than other households.
The better we understand the impact of violence on education, the more equipped we are to
propose, design, and execute intervention programs.
