This country study provides updated information and data on social protection programs and calculates the social protection index (SPI) for the Marshall Islands in view of the revised SPI methodology. The revised SPI methodology also provides scope to measure the gender responsiveness of programs, and poverty targeting of programs.

The primary objective of the Marshall Islands Country Report is to present the results of the research on social protection programs and policies in the Marshall Islands from all related ministries; summarizing quantitative information on these activities to enable the formulation of a national SPI.
