Child wellbeing and child poverty: where the UK stands in the European table
Child wellbeing and child poverty:where the UK stands in the European table, is a briefing paper of research by a York University team for the Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) published in April 2009. This league table of young people's wellbeing places the United Kingdom 24th out of 29 countries measured across seven areas: health, education, housing, material resources, relationships, risk, and how young people feel about their lives. The data was mostly drawn from 2006 and does not reflect changes as a result of government programmes since that time. This briefing paper is a summary of J Bradshaw and D Richardson, ‘An index of child wellbeing in Europe’, published in Child Indicators Research (April 2009).
