Large scale studies published in the 1990s and early 2000s generally showed that significant educational disparities existed based on orphan status and a child's relationship to the head of the household. Since the data relied on by these studies were collected, the global community has conducted major campaigns to close these gaps, through the Education for All (EFA) and Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). This study examined these factors using eight country-years from five sub-Saharan African countries (Malawi, Mozambique, Niger, Uganda, and Zimbabwe).
