A league table of child poverty in rich nations /

by UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre.

Publisher: Florence, Italy UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre 2000Description: 28 p.Other title: UNICEF Innocenti Report Card ; no. 1.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This report on child poverty in the world's wealthiest nations concludes that one in six of the rich world's children is poor - a total of 47 million. This report provides the most comprehensive estimates so far of child poverty across the member countries of the OECD. Despite a doubling and redoubling of national incomes in most OECD nations since 1950, a significant percentage of their children are still living in families so materially poor that normal health and growth are at risk. A far larger proportion remain in relative poverty. Their physical needs may be catered for, but they are painfully excluded from the activities and advantages that are considered normal by their peers. The report reveals a wide range of child poverty rates in countries at broadly similar levels of economic development - from under 3 per cent in Sweden to a high of over 22 per cent in the USA. By comparing data from different countries, the new research asks what can be learned about the causes of child poverty and examines the policies that have contributed to the success of lower rates in some countries. In particular, it seeks to explain the situation by exploring the impact on poverty rates of lone parenthood, unemployment, low wages and levels of social expenditures. The Report Card calls for a new commitment to ending child poverty in the world's richest nations.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
