Child well-being in Rich Countries

A Comparative Overview

Part One of this report presents a league table of child well-being in 29 of the world's advanced economies. Part Two looks at what children say about their own well-being (including a league table of children’s life satisfaction). Part Three examines changes in child well-being in advanced economies over the first decade of the 2000s, looking at each country’s progress in educational achievement, teenage birth rates, childhood obesity levels, the prevalence of bullying, and the use of tobacco, alcohol and drugs.

Hide / Show Abstract

The first UNICEF overview of child well-being was published in 2007, drawing on internationally comparable data from the years 2001 to 2003. The current overview draws on data from 2009 and 2010. Is it therefore possible to say whether child well-being has risen or fallen in economically advanced nations over the first decade of the 2000s?
