Enrollment probability is used as a child education measure, to examine demand-side issues. Reduced form demand functions used to investigate the determining determinants of child education in Islamabad slums. The study investigates how the demographics of respondents and household heads affect their decision-making. For example, boys are more likely than girls to go to school, whereas families with female leaders are less likely to do so. The family's financial situation strongly influences the chance of a kid enrolling in school, and the father's job has a particularly significant effect. However, this sort of work dramatically boosts the likelihood of returning to school. As slum-related factors explain a wide range of differences in the decision-making process for child enrollment and school choice. For the sake of improving educational policies in urban regions, it is necessary to do research on slum areas separately because of the variations in theory-based and slum-specific characteristics.
